I have this friend who has done--who IS DOING--this amazing thing. She is following her dreams, she is pursuing passions.
We had a conversation almost two months ago about the courage it takes to chase after that which inspires you. And after our conversation I decided she might need some tangible encouragement.
So I set about putting together a little care package (one could also call it an "I'm so proud of you package") for her. Among other things her care package contains these handwarmers:
She asked about my ability to make them several months before I moved away, and I told her I wasn't sure that I could, but I would try.
To be honest I didn't know if I could make them when I first picked up my needles and started casting on what would become the cuff of the first handwarmer. But the thing about Erica Stubblefield is that by going after her dreams she inspires me to chase after mine...knitting or otherwise.
PS. Sending the package tomorrow, so don't say anything if you see her.
