your humble and silky life

emily came over yesterday for a little tea party. also, she taught me how to crochet!

 



































































note emily's gorgeous (gorgeous) blanket (above and below) and my humble (and very first ever) granny square.* she is an extremely patient teacher, and i was pretty proud of my square, even though i'm dubious about my ability to make another one on my own. but that's okay--it's a great excuse for another tea party.

  





































*i bought yarn in melissa crowe blue!
