sharks played an important role among the ancient hawaiians, and were considered by some as ‘aumākua, personal or family gods, and sacred guardians and protectors that should be respected and even fed. sharks also played a role in myths and legends, as well as hawaiian history.
the hawaiian word for shark is manō , kyle said there were eleven manō in the water, sand sharks, nurse sharks, and one tiger had been spotted earlier. but no one went in the water then. i'm so glad my son is having epic experiences and that mostly, he waits to tell me about them afterwards. ;)

hello dear friends! i hope you are well, it's almost spring! i have a new job! it's a very big job, but only involves one small thing. it's piper pearl! well, we didn't plan for things to go this way, but life working it's magical mysterious ways, decided i should take a leave from my work and stay home here with my three month old grandbaby for a time. my daughter had to return to her job and mine graciously understood (bless).
so here we are, hum de dum dum, wee pip and i (in baby heaven i am). will be back soon. i hope. (how do you mama's do it all?) :)

and now, i'm utterly thrilled to heaven and back to introduce my two week old granddaughter, piper. she is already becoming familiar with two of her grandmother's passions, knitting and photograpy (i haven't told her i love to travel too, but there is time for that) :)
her first knit is this little gown. it has a drawstring bottom and buttons at the shoulders. it's from the book 'baby collection' by kelbourne woolens, the pattern is mollie. i knit much of this while she slept in my arms. baby heaven is where i'm at. it's made with 100% mill spun merino wool, dyed with madder root by camilla fiber co. gifted by a dear friend. i added antique mother of pearl buttons and a silk ribbon to gather the bottom. to keep my hands busy, to channel joy, show my love.
