What is the purpose of knitting? It can be an activity done by older ladies. Of course it’s not rocket science. But it creates and humans are primed to create. Something to think about. Have a good day. Jasm
This king whose birthday is the 29th of this month speaks of crafts in relation to God’s creation of him. In Psalm 139 verse 13. “You did knit me together in my mother’s womb.” An interesting thought about knitting. Have a good day. Jasm
The work is slow. I have turned the heel. This worked. I am pleased. Onward to the toe. Have a good day. Jasm
I began some socks. They sound mundane. In truth they are difficult. For starters knitting on four pins with double points injurious. The confines of the knitting action can hurt your hands. Then to turn the heel difficult. Worth it when you close the toe, a definite yes. Have a good day. Jasm
It’s not about knitting just a small departure just to raise a smile.
Romeo Romeo where art thou
Down here two metres distant
I’ll blow you a kiss
It will have to do in this instant
Knitting keeps you young. It challenges and inspires. We get lost in another world. It’s a place where out worries can be tackled. Don’t pass up a chance to remain young for it helps in the long run. Have a good day. Jasm
You want to give up. You want to pull the wool out. Wait. Just a few hours then the whole situation will look different.
In order to see the light wool to its best there has to be a contrast. This best with the dark. So we quite often team dark stripes with light. Or a dark body to slim wirh a light top. Yea light is a design feature. Have a good day. Jasm
A break can be welcome. It brings a respite. A time to think. But there are other breaks. One is when you discover a knot in your wool halfway along your row. What do you do? Screen is the first impulse. The second is maybe I will make it. But no. You just have to pick it back,cut out the knot and start again. Have a good day. Jasm
When you begin a new piece of knitwear it’s like exploring a new country. You start with the rib after cast on. You knit the body. You make mistakes along the way. By the end you have discovered a new garment and learned new skills. Just like any explorer. Have a good day. Jasm
