This girl …

lives in Portland.

is my sister.

is smart, down to earth and super sweet.

is a total hipster.

is in love with my little man, Samuel.

is a yarn snob (and happily admits it).

has an awesome collection of yarn.

is an amazing knitter.

makes stuff like this …

(check out the detail in that sweater!)

(Samuel is one lucky boy!  This is his fourth hand knit sweater.  He actually only has three because I lost one.  Absolutely bummed about it … hope that whoever finds it adores it as much as I did.)

and this …

and this …

This girl is amazing.  And she’s amazing with him.  So much happiness and love between the two of them.

My heart is full of joy this October evening.
