Well not quite that effortless, but ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you 'Sheep'!
I've also started the I-cord on Mr S' blanket. It's slow going, but I know I'm going to be much happier than if I'd used piping.
Life is complicated - love, family, work... Knitting is simple - it's about imagination and creativity - about connecting with history and about connecting with my inner self. People knitted in ancient Eygpt, in the Middle Ages, on boats fishing off the coast of Scotland in the eighteenth century and today. Pretty amazing really. When I knit I relax, the rhythm allows my mind to wander. I solve the problems of my world!
