Beautiful post for the Solemnity of the Annunciation over at the Faith and Family blog.
LaMamacita: March 2009 Archives
Spring has sprung. I've polished my toes and whipped out the sandals. How I wish these precious Steve Madden espadrilles were among them.
Baby maryjanes!! I've just queued these to make for a dear friend should her roasting chile turn out to be a she. I am a slow knitter. It takes me forever to finish anything so I've learned to shoot for quick projects and then add on to the gift if I can.
Here's the pair I made when my very own roasting chile turned out to be a she:
I knit them with Moda Dea Sassy Stripes. They fit for about 2 or 3 seconds. Look at her tiny legs! I can't believe she was that tiny just a year ago. She is next to me chatting and gobbling banana right now. *verklempt*
We listened to this track three times in the car today at the request of my three year old. All my YouTube searches for a decent video of it were in vain. Does anybody want to hear dingy college covers of Cecilia? Methinks nay.
Cecilia - Simon and Garfunkel
Rodrigo y Gabriela. Just amazing.
It's rainy here and the ninos were tricked by it into sleeping in late. Muuhahaha. This gave me time to poke around the internet at length with my coffee. I came across Cotton Factory. Most of their stuff is pretty questionable but these made me laugh.
I saved Latin:
The asterisk at the bottom reads "*except for bacon". I'm not a huge fan of bacon but it gave me a laugh and anything bacon makes me think of Smock.
And my personal favorite!
We have on Matisyahu today. This song makes me cry when it's really loud in the car. I embedded the Letterman performance of King Without a Crown rather than the official video because this Hasidic Jewish kid is one of those sweet performers that is way better live and unjacked with.
What have you been listening to?
Saints Perpetua and Felicity, watch over all mothers and children who are separated from each other because of war or persecution. Show a special care to mothers who are imprisoned and guide them to follow your example of faith and courage. Amen
This is the Acorn Hat. I'm testing the pattern for the designer. So far I'm only 10% of the way through but it's looking pretty cute and should be available for download soon.
As I knit this I'm always thinking how impressive fiber designers are. The insight and math involved blows me mind.
