I found out on Friday about the protests that have been going on in Iran. 🇮🇷🦁 These protests are the direct result of the assault that led to the death of 22 year old Mahsa Amini. 🇮🇷🦁 Because I know folx will be asking: we haven’t spoken to any of our family there; so for the time being we are assuming that no news (from them) is good news. 🇮🇷🦁 We will be sending out a post (via our Substack) about it later this week, but here are some excellent resources with what you can do today, tomorrow, and in the future: @ninaansary @nazaninboniadi @saharsanjar (I’ll be posting more in our stories as I come across them.) 🇮🇷 🦁 #FreeIran #MahsaAmini #IranProtests2022 #مهسا_امینی 🇮🇷🦁 [Image description: An Iranian flag, made from untwisted skeins of yarn, with a lion toy in the center. Incidentally, the lion toy is the one that Jasmin uses for Project Cornerstone, an SEL program that teaches - among other things- empathy and being an upstander.]

Hi, all. I’ve started getting concerned messages since it’s been almost a month since we’ve recorded. 🦠 I caught COVID on my way home from New York, and while I’m over the Covid, it’s not over me yet. So clingy and needy. 🦠 (Nobody else caught it; I isolated and masked at home.) 🦠 I’m dealing with extreme fatigue; I can take the kids to school, and then I need a long nap- that kind of fatigue. 🦠 We’re hoping to record later this week, since I’ve been feeling a bit better, but really, we’ll get back to the mics when I can manage to. 🦠 In the meantime, here’s a teaser photo of my @XandyPeters inspired Electric Mayhem Muppet coat. The yarn is all @TheLemonadeShop, except for the neon green, which is @LadyDyeYarns and @LaBienAimee. 🦠 #bipocknitters #knitting #BIPOCMaker #KnittersofInstagram #IndieDyersOfInstagram #KnitmoregirlsPodcast #ProjectSweaterChest #handknit #couture #Bespoke #Knit

And just like that, my baby is seven years old. 🎂 My littlest guy with the biggest imagination, the sweetest loving heart, and the most terrifying adventurous spirit. 🎂 You haven’t lived until you’ve experienced a Rex snuggle; he is so earnest and articulate that there’s no question as to where you stand with him. 🎂 Rex came into the world the way that he lives every day: at top speed and volume. I wouldn’t change a single thing about him. 🎂 Someone asked me what I think he’s going to be when he grows up: my prediction this year is a filmmaker/director. 🎂 I love you a million, billion, Rex. Happy birthday. 🎂 [Image Description: The cutest multiracial boy in the world with the sparkliest brown eyes and flowing brown hair, smiles gap-toothily into the camera, with his arms up in the air.

I’m feeling owned by my possessions at the moment, which is part of why I’m finishing such well-aged UFOs. 🐙 This project originally hit a wall because there are SO MANY faux cables. After doing the bobbles on my Bobbie Top with a crochet hook, I had a lightbulb moment: I could put a Tunisian crochet hook on one end of a circular needle, and a regular knitting needle on the other. 🐙 (I’m reasonably certain that @SkacelKnitting made something like this, circa 2000.) 🐙 Pattern: Spectral by Debbi Stone, Yarn: Cephalopod Yarns Skinny Bugga! 🐙 #bipocknitters #knitting #BIPOCMaker #KnittersOfInstagram #IndieDyersOfInstagram #KnitmoregirlsPodcast #ProjectSweaterChest #handknit #couture #Bespoke #CacheDash2022 #TeamCuteknitter #BeatBostonJen 🐙 [Image Description: A twisted stitch cowl knit in a purple gradient, looped around an @ErinLaneBags project bag.]

Happy birthday to the co-producer of my two favorite people in the universe. 💫 Nobody knows exactly what it’s going to be like parenting multiracial kids, but when the rubber hits the road, you’ve always been there with me, shoulder to shoulder. 💫 Metaphorically speaking. You’re more than a foot taller than me, which you know is just showing off. 💫 For 43, my wish for you is a peaceful, joy-filled year, because this is your third pandemic birthday and a year with no catastrophes would be aces. 💫 Failing that, there’s always cookies and that new Star Trek show on Paramount plus, which is pretty good, too. 💫 Happy birthday, and please hide the remaining Bundtinis so that we don’t have a sugar gremlin situation first thing in the morning. 💫 [image Description: a handsome white man with buzzed, dark hair and a vandyke beard gazes thoughtfully down at a chocolate Bundtini with an extra tall candle sticking out of it, ablaze.
