Knit Together

I am a knitter. My Aunt Fannie taught me to knit when I was just a little girl. From time to time I do other kinds of handwork, but there is something about knitting that always draws me back. A peace settles over me as the needles pass through the yarn, clicking softly, forming stitches. There is a sense of fulfillment as the stitches begin to form themselves into a pattern and the project takes shape...

The rest of this little story is over at Laced With Grace this morning. I would be so honored to meet you over there.




  1. For some reason I can't get there today. But I was thinking of my 6th grade teacher, a very strict, not loving teacher, who taught us to knit to make Christmas presents for our families. It was during the Hong Kong flu, so we got to knit a lot, in order to not be so far ahead of the kids who were missing. Then my 8th grade Home Ec teacher was Danish and could she ever knit. She taught me more. I did a lot of knitting when I was young, but haven't for years. In fact, I don't do any of the creative stuff I used to do! Sad.

    I wonder why I have to select a profile every time I comment here lately. Weird.

  2. I'd love to read more but nothing takes me there this morning.

  3. For me, it is the quilting and now more recently, the crocheting. My fingers know what to do,and my brain can rest. In the quiet. And the resulting peace is lovely. Why did it take me 56 years to learn to be still a while?

  4. I learned to crochet and do embroidery myself. I am headed to the other blog now.

  5. I never learned to knit or crochet...my fingers are challenged.
    Love the last post.
    Can't go over for some reason (o:
