Welcome! My website is finally coming alive.

 

Knitting

What is it about knitting that it can us give so much joy?

I can’t speak for others only for myself, here are just a few of my joys, frustrations, and satisfactions.

I volunteer at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center by helping with knitting and talking.  People like my Blossom Blanket.

Joy

There are so many aspects of joy
Feeling, handling, smelling, and looking at beautiful fibers
Watching the stitches form and the patterns develop
Learning: multiple techniques, new methods, new finesse tips
Developing skill and confidence over the years
Starting to change then developing my own patterns
Finishing with less than a yard of yarn left
Knowing when to “pick the battle” and when to let it go
Above all is the comradery found with others

 

 

 

My Biggest Swatch

Frustration

Part of life unfortunately
Finding a mistake at the beginning when at the end of a row
Finding it’s the wrong size through lack of a swatch
Turning around and going the wrong way
And so many other little oops we are able to contrive

Satisfaction

Fixing the oops
Taking the parts of a garment and making a tidy whole
Getting that last end done and it on the blocking board
Planning and creating just the right gift
Seeing the magic of colors together
Being unsure of the plan and having it work out
Warm Feelings and Sharing the Joy

This website is about sharing the joy.
