A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Know Where My People Are

It is not uncommon for our loved ones to lay their fears before us and we just don’t even know what to do with them. It can be excruciating to send the people we love off to school…onto to the field…off to college…into battle…or into territories unknown when all we want to do is hug them to our chest and never let them go.~~Hands Free Mama

There is something quite powerful I say and do to ease those fears. My teens face a lot of the world each day and new season on their own. It’s so much harder now than it was when they were younger! Nonetheless, I encourage daily communication as much as possible–a phone call, a text here and there–just so I know they are there and I do the same. The world is a crazy place. With so much unknown, we have each other and a PEACE that passes all understanding. They know I’m praying for them everyday. Today, I reminded myself the power that comes from knowing where my people are. There is great comfort in knowing someone is waiting for me.

The brisk mornings, warmer afternoons, and the changing of the leaves really turn my crank. Yet, I’m sad to see summer go for the unofficial beginning of fall. I love more sunshine, more camping, more stripping down and swimming naked in the river. Le Sigh. You’re just here for some free patterns, right? Use the coupon code SEPFREE to get a FREE copy of Banditos, good ’til end of tomorrow (Pacific time.) Before you know it, the free pattern will be gone, like summer.

Starting today is the Entrelacé Cabled Shawl Mystery KAL by Linda Browning. This shawl pattern is FREE with coupon code CABLEMKAL from September 1-8, 2014. Join the Tiny Knitters Group for prizes eligibility. Shown here is one of Linda’s lace beauties Lissome published earlier in the year.

Sometimes the highest and best use of a sock yarn isn’t socks. This beautiful Boreas Infinity Scarf lets you choose 3 different lengths all from one ball. You’ll love the color play of each of the eight Hakkaspett shades.

I love this Chameleon Hat!  It works up super, super quick and may be customized in so many different ways–Valentine’s hat, Team USA Olympic spirit, Pot o’Gold for St. Patrick’s Day, Spring Fling, May Flowers, Gone Fishin’, Red/White/& Blue, Splish Splash, and now for September–Friendly Skies (FREE pattern!) Maria Bittner, the creative designer, is going to see how many different versions she can come up with for this design. Of course, I’ll share with you as she unveils each and everyone of ’em.

Thank you for stopping in and sharing my blog with friends. It brings me great pleasure to take you along on my journey of self discovery, self love, and crafty adventures! Visit me on Facebook here for more inspiring projects.   As always, they are FREE.

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

    Beautifully written, Sarah! I feel like I should collect all these free patterns and send them as a Christmas gift to my sister. She is learning to knit but doesn’t get connected to the internet very often. But I especially appreciated the beginning of your email.

    • Some of us struggle all our lives to know who our people are and think we know who, where those people are. It is good to think about what we give to our children, even our friends, and other relations.

      Are you coming to guild night? Hope to see you soon. Enjoy your training in these glorious, crispy days, Katy 😀
