A glorious Monday morning that I woke to. There is a crispness on the air - the birds singing and squirrels frolicking in the backyard... such beauty that one only needs to look and see to appreciate.
But who has the time anymore?
Who just steps out their door with coffee (or tea) takes in a deep breath and admires the beauty that is all around them? A beauty that can't be packaged, bought or wrapped...
It is these types of mornings, which bring me the most inspiration..
It was this sort of morning, a week or so ago, when I had a vision for an Angel. Feverishly I worked on getting her just right. From the waves in her hair, to the look of her sandals... of course, keeping every stitch as simple as possible.
I think she is perfect. Of course, I am bias..
This little K.I.S.S. Angel, the newest in the K.I.S.S. Series, is pushing the boundaries of "keeping it simple" due to one slightly challenging method in which to make her knees and elbows bend - Yup, I said it; "her knees and elbows bend." (yours don't?).
Aside from that, which could always be 'overlooked' and just crocheted static, she's as simple as the rest of the K.I.S.S. Series and every bit as adorable.
She is currently in the 'testing' phase and will have her photo shoot mid-week and then available for you at FiberDoodles by K4TT etsy. She'd make the perfect little angel for your little angel - model measuring nearly 16 inches tall when crocheted with a Size G hook and using Worsted Weight yarns.
Angels are so perfect for this time of year... when we think of all we've accomplished over the past 12 months - and more importantly, what's still left to be done.
We all could use an angel watching over us...
