Storms (A Month for the Dreamer)

You hold me through storms,
your wings enveloping me in dreams.

You are the silence after storms,
you are peace, blooming in my Heart.

WIP Wednesday, First Blanket

I’m currently knitting a baby blanket for a family member and her son, and so far I’m very happy with how it’s going.

Knit with leftover yarn from this hat [link], and this is the first two sections (out of five.)  I’m currently on pause, because I know I’m going to run out of yarn…and the yarn, as far as I can tell, has been discontinued.  I got in at a discount bin, so I’m pretty sure it’s all gone from the store.  I looked online, but couldn’t find the yarn at all.

What I did was order some super bulky yarn off Amazon that’s from a different brand, and in a different color.  What I plan on doing is making the third section into a striped pattern, so it looks like the color change was intentional, then switch to the second color.

This is based off of this pattern [link].  I ended up changing the border from 14 rows to 6, and I’ve switched the border on the side from seed stitch to garter stitch.  I could knit the seed stitch in a long row just fine, but keeping track of it in the side border was difficult.  So far, I’m happy with the change, but I think I’ll knit the final border in seed stitch.

Mundane Life (A Month for the Dreamer)

My Beloved, you encourage me to lift
up the life that I have Here.  You do
not ask for sacrifices, or shatter my
dreams in order to bring me closer to you.
All you ask is that I love you, and that I strive
now towards the future, and live in the moment.
Even as flashbacks and paranoia seem to
linger in my mind, you hold me and remind me that
I am nothing but human Here, and you love me
for that.  I do not need to be more than I am to
earn your Love and affection.
