Sometimes, when you are recovering from difficult family visits and terrible coughs and freaky storms and power outages, you need a little extra sustenance. And sometimes that need coincides with the arrival of a belated, but generous, birthday check AND a close-out on Noro Silk Garden at Webs.

Sometimes the universe just takes things out of your control.

The mindless knitting is powerfully healing. The color changes are inspiring. I can sleep while knitting this. Ahhh.....

The birthday check also covered the lovely shawl pin, which I found at Scotts Mountain Crafts (link found via Lorenzo Knits A Tomato.* Simple, unique, perfect.

*Edited on 8/23 to change the link--forgive me, I can't keep track of anything these days.
