Eye Candy: Don’t Click This Link
December 6, 2013
A quick note to share a wonderful Tumblr with you and our readers. Warning: if you go to this Tumblr, you may be a while. It’s addictive. It’s wonderful. I want to get on a plane and fly to Santiago, Chile, to meet its proprietress, Mercedes Galarce aka Meme Galarce. I follow her on Twitter. I follow her on Instagram. I haunt her Etsy shop. The reason: I love her eye. She loves what I love. And if I didn’t know about it, when I see it on Mitimota, I love it.
Here you go, the dangerous link: Mitimota Knit Dreams. Click it if you dare.
Enjoy, everybody. Don’t be mad at me if you get nothing else done today. (And thank you, Meme. Fun fact: one of my early mentors, my friend’s grandmother Maria-Paulina Saporta de Rodriguez, born circa 1900, was also a Meme from Santiago, and she also had a wonderful eye for beauty.)
