Things that make me happy … beautiful things created by other hands.
This is truly a work of art from Karatstix.
There’s not much it doesn’t have. Precisely tooled holes to measure needles, convenient 2- and 4-inch measures for gauge purposes, centimeters AND inches, and even a lobster-claw clasp at the corner.
It made me gasp
when I unpacked it.
And there was more in the package – this zipper pull and even a special owl stitch marker, presumably from one of the scraps. (Mind you, you know how small a stitch marker is, so you can guess how I had to macro this just to photograph.)
But wait … there’s more.
A different kind of artistry, of course.
Sadly, my camera and your monitor together cannot hope to capture the depth of this turquoise-teal-ocean’s-depths color. Yeah, it’s more Sundara Sock. I know, I know … don’t say a thing ~ I’m not done yet.
I have no business with this, either. It’s Ember Over Flame, in case you’re wondering. It is gorgeous.
Perhaps it will help me speed-knit the rest of this test-knit.
Here’s hoping …
