The Joy of Stitch

Where do I go from here

Most of the time it is another shawl, usual triangular.

My nearest and dearest groan:” Not another one!!” and I think: “Oh, yes please!”

Why? I love the action of working with my hand and I want to enjoy it, without being distracted by complicated pattern etc.

I love the feel of wool, my wooden knitting needles and the rhythm I can get into. 

The action of a handcraft like knitting and embroidery brings me right into the moment, centers my attention.

It brings a satisfaction with it which is hard to explain, because it is the slow steady rhythm,

the looking back over the finished stitches, there is no hurry to fulfill a deadline, they are works in progress.
