Makes My Heart Beat Fast

Remember last year when I met Kate Gilbert's aunt?  Well, she's a dear and I saw her at church last month when we visited for an ordination.  She told me she had a bag of yarn for me that Kate had given her and she wanted to give to me.

Well, I can't refuse yarn and I must admit having yarn that Kate touched, knit with, was inspired by...well, it makes my heart beat fast.

The bag was no small bag - in fact it was huge!


I dumped it out on my bed and of course I had to sort it.




Blues, purples, greens

neutrals and greens



Reds, browns, greys





















It is almost overwhelming - I'm envisioning some color work or a linen stitch scrappy scarf.  I want to be brilliant with it as it was once knit with by Kate Gilbert!  Oh, I do hope I can meet her via her lovely aunt.  I think I should knit something for the aunt, right?
