A Perfect 14

A friend of mine (Kerosene Deluxe)  who is an incredibly wonderful model is a part of a film called 'A Perfect 14'

Here is the write up from their IMDB page-
A documentary film that explores the fascinating world of plus size modelling and the women involved who show how beauty comes from confidence and not your dress size. A sexy pin-up, a beautiful full figured and an alternative model share their personal experiences of struggle and success to help empower themselves and other women through their artistic and professional work. These fearless models have a body positive activist mentality and are part of a growing culture of photographers, designers, make up artists and performers who promote confidence and respect for individuality through their exposure. These women are determined to eliminate the established perception in society that one size fits all.

Everyday Peacocks

This past week I received a gift from dyer Julie Asselin -
Julie and I are releasing a knitting pattern tomorrow. It is a pink shawl that she dyed the yarn for, and speaking from experience- her yarn is a treat to knit with. It is really special!

Back to the gift- Julie had a friend make me stitch markers, and a shawl adornment (pin isn't a great enough word!). They are from Everyday Peacocks, and they are perfect. 
The shawl adornment is made into my logo- so sweet!

And there were stitch makers too! They include a cat, leaves, fire, copper mordant, and a bike wheel!
They are all important parts of my life!
So thank you again Julie, and thank you Everyday Peacocks!!
You both are amazing!

Something Lovely- It is a new pattern party week!

Something Lovely is a new cowl pattern that just went live on Ravelry. 

And a big shout out and thank you to Sylvia for taking the photos! Check out her blog!!
