inspiration on my doorstep

Yesterday morning, my cousin showed up at my doorstep for a quick visit as she was passing through town. We sat in the living room, drinking coffee and covered all our favorite topics: babies, family, things we miss about our grandmother, her favorite wedding gifts so far (a handmade rug from home "grown", hand-dyed alpaca yarn…wow!), and of course, most importantly–knitting.

But what I couldn't get past, was the knitting she was wearing. How much do I love this necklace she made? She said she whipped up last January, but that the cord took forever….a long i-cord grafted together, a seed stitch "clasp" to hold it all together.

It's beautiful.

Now I just have to convince her to write me up a her pattern….or better yet, make me one! *hint *hint (Oh, wait. That wasn't really a hint, was it? I pretty much just flat-out asked, didn't I? 🙂
