“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
― Elizabeth Zimmermann
When I was a little girl, I would visit my Gram. Across the street, lived a sweet little lady in a wonderful house that smelled of hot tea. One day, while I was visiting Gram, her neighbor walked over and presented me with a brown paper bag. Inside, was a colorful poncho and matching purse. Pink and blue striped. With fringe. Beautifully knitted. I wore the poncho and carried the purse with pride. They were one-of-a-kind.
I am taking a knitting class. The scarf I am creating will be colorful. It will be knitted with studious concentration. When the weather permits, I will wear it with pride. It will be one-of-a-kind.
