Home is peek-a-boo under play silks when she’s fussy, with a different face appearing each time.
Home is the sound of the wind in the trees, the sound of children running, stomping, singing, laughing…
Home is a belly full of warm milk and sips of tulsi-rose tea from mama’s teacup.
Home is knowing that whenever the world gets too big or too scary, there is always a spot, just for her, on mama’s back.
Home is where she nuzzles her sleepy head behind the curtain of my hair.
Home is balls of yarn to tangle and chase.
Home is the rhythm of a rocking chair, a nursery rhyme, a steady pat.
Home is a candle lit at dinner time.
Home is dreams and prayers softly spoken at the drowsy hours of twilight and dawn.
This blanket is the knitting project that was featured in my banner early in autumn. It’s one of the free patterns from the Project Linus site. The yarn is Cascade Eco+, left over from this project and that extra skein that accidentally found it’s way home with me back in February.
