This and That
The list that brings me joy:
-fluffy comforters and quilts during this cold snap
-knitting the sweater that is near completion and dreaming of wearing it soon
-an ankle brace!!
-woolly socks and warm mitts
-sliced cucumbers for a snack that echoes summer
I had so much fun teaching my first knitting classes. I loved seeing what colors were chosen. If only you could have heard the thinking going on after the cast on! I take for granted what I can do with my eyes closed. Teaching others to knit became a moment of stillness in time to stop and observe. As they left I wondered which ones would continue the knitting as their craft. Some? All? Would they be the kind that pick it up and put it down over and over until the "aha" moment, r be like me all those years ago, stubbornly determined to get it. Pushing myself to continue and yes there were many many tears shed because that is how I get-emotional.
I hope you have a lovely weekend! We are getting a bit of snow and I'm going to thoroughly enjoy it because it's supposed to disappear with in a week with warmer temperatures heading our way!
