Woolen hearts

I built us a coffer made of cedar, to protect our woolen hearts from hungry moths.

I think I’m feeling a bit poetic today. I found the following poem in a little black moleskin notebook that I forgot all about. I wrote it last June.

Alone in a sea of minds,
hiding behind my eyelids
you come thundering
through my chest in the darkness.

Tear me apart with your
silken words.
Unseam the edges of
my placid countenance
with your gentle irises.

You have the heart of a poet.

Okay, now I’m going to put my soul away…haha. I read some poetry at a local art event recently. I didn’t know my face could get that red and warm. T’was a fun experience though.

I missed my blogiversary by ages now. It was three years on September 20th. I made a hat. I have its pattern almost ready. I need to make some tweaks to make it official. Here is what it will look like:

Bibbity Bobbity

It’s called Bibbity Bobbity. I’ll put it here and on Ravelry when I get it done. I don’t have many excuses other than school and having too much fun outside of school. Midterms came and went, now finals. My hope is that by publicly announcing its forthcoming arrival on the blog, I will be held accountable. We’ll see how that goes. At the very least, Christmas break is just around the corner and I’ll run out of excuses.

It was very cold here today. Well, in the 30′s (Farenheit), anyway. I know I’m a wimp. That’s pretty cold to me. It seems like an Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton kind of day with this grey weather.
