It’s taken me 39 years to become this person! ✨ My kids are the best, and my dogs are the cutest; these are the facts. ✨ Acts of service is my primary love language, and I enjoy creativity of every kind, but especially a particularly clever portmanteau. ✨ [Pattern: Reignbeaux by @YelleyKnits, Yarn: @SeaChangeFibers DK “French Dispatch” minis and “Hazy Sky”] ✨ #BIPOCKnitters #knitting #KnittersofInstagram #HandDyedYarn #KnitmoregirlsPodcast #TestKnit #ProjectSweaterChest #ReignBeauxSweater #IndieDyers #IndieDyersofInstagram #Bespoke #knit #SeaChangeFibers ✨ [Image Description: a striking, freckled and fair-skinned Persian American woman with a sharp, short, bright turquoise haircut poses in a pullover with an ingenious construction: a semicircular rainbow on the right side, with the sweater built around it, and a matching rainbow on the opposite sleeve.
