On The Needles

Knitting was my first love.  It was the first craft I learned as an adult.  We have endured through the years, 12 of them, I believe.  Sometimes I knit a lot, though lately, I've been knitting less for all kinds of reasons.  It feels good to have something back on the needles.

What I love about knitting is also what I sometimes find to be challenging.  You begin with the end it mind.  For me as an artist, I'm not always sure where I'm headed.  Knitting doesn't work that way.  And even though you know where you're going, you can't get there very fast.  You must attend, first and always, to each next stitch.  Knitting is about being present.
