21,618 Stitches of Love


I've made this pattern once before... in hopes... of a tiny granddaughter.


This time, each of the 21,618 stitches were crafted especially for a Little Lady on the way...


I enjoy knitting love and hope and blessings and prayers into a garment... and this one brims over with those.


The pattern is the Clara Dress by Karin Vestergaard.  The yarn is Madelinetosh Light, color - iceberg.


Of course, then there needed to be shoes...


I hope you dance, dear granddaughter of mine...

Love, Noni

Moments...


Occasionally in life, we are blessed to witness moments...

Moments lives irrevocably change...


Moments you can almost hear a heart's seams rip as it swells with an exquisite, indescribable, unequivocal tenderness and... your own heart rips a little more with that same sweet tenderness...


Moments you witness a love born that will place another's needs above your own... a love that will press on in times of exhaustion, frustration, hurt and sometimes hopelessness... A love that will endure and grow and carve your soul into the one God intended...

A love that will give you more joy... and grace... and moments of pure delight than you ever knew existed... and, yes, more heartaches and worry and concern.  A love that will stretch and challenge and fulfill you beyond your wildest imaginings. 
A love that finally illuminates a pale understanding of God's love for us.


A moment of knowing your child owns that kind of love.


August 31, 2012 we welcomed our newest grandchild... She is an angel, just like all the rest... More precious than I could ever have words to express. 


My heart is full...


Blessings to all ~ tanna
