Purple Healing......

Hold on to what is good,
even if it's a handful of earth. 
Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a tree that stands by itself. 
Hold on to what you must do, 
Even if it's a long way from here. 
Hold on to your life, 
Even if it's easier to let go. 
Hold on to my hand, 
Even if I've gone away from you.

Clack those needles Mommy.....

Phew....finally finished my sons long awaited Tagg top......It really was an easy pattern and of course seamless but it just kept getting knocked back for more pressing deadlines and new projects that probably shouldn't have been started until it was finished....anyhoo it's done and I love how it turned out :)
I've also got a few other knits to show you but the majority of what I've been doing is a whole bunch of secrets so they are all under wraps for now!

I've listed all of my bags for sale in my etsy shop for a change - go here:
