Video to Inspire: Sonder by Jon Koenig

Hello friends,


A friend of mine posted this video on Facebook today from Vimeo done by Jon Koenig called "Sonder".  I thought I would watch because it looked very interesting.  I love this video because it makes me think that every person we pass by has their own worries, celebrations, memories and family and friends and we only see them as sometimes a blur or another stranger passing by.  I have often thought of this when I am walking down the streets in the city how there are so many people in the world and we only interact with a select group throughout our lives.  It also makes you think of what kind of presence you want to be in other people's lives.  I always think that I want to look pleasant and be a positive presence in a blur of people.

 

Hope you enjoyed it!
Have a great day and thank you for stopping by !

Fall Knitting Projects To Keep Us Warm

Hello friends,

Now that fall is soon approaching I decided to do a post on some knitting ideas. I can feel that cold chill in the air and I am already wearing boots and jackets to keep warm. Do you have any ideas for Christmas gifts yet? I cannot believe it is almost Christmas in a few months.  For knitters this time comes up really fast! I had plans to knit up some socks for family and still have to come up with something special for my boyfriend.  I feel like I just knitted my boyfriend his hat last year and the infinity scarf for my cousin.  The year goes by so fast!  Some things that are inspiring me right now in the knitting world are... 


1. I love this cute little pumpkin found over at The Sitting Tree! check it out, free pattern download.

2. These cute hats with triangle patterns by Very Shannon

3.  I really like this slouchy hat found on Craftsy.

 4. These cozy scarves! I love the pattern of the orange one.
