all morning my fingers ached for the softness. for the merino, baby alpaca and silk blend that is The Fiber Company's Organik. the morning was a bit chaotic with a preschool valentine's party, sensory overload for my little guy and full of envy for my daughter - waiting anxiously for her turn next year. my heart is pulled in different directions, trying to stay true to myself, motherhood as i believe it, and then the constant thoughts of why do i feel so different in this mothering world? the answer for me lies in the yarn. i think - i know that i am that soft landing for my children. and my fingers, my fingers and heart need the same soft landing, found in a bit of wool and a growing sweater.
