a year ago or so i began to knit again adrianna's august birthdate was my motivation sweaters to knit for the first grandchild
last year passed sometimes with the speed of weaving sometimes with the speed of knitting
six or seven sweaters done for the munchkin-to-be
then i turned my attention to hats a different challenge two hats for the munchkin hats for friends who are battling cancer hats for my niece and grandniece hats for friends who are simply friends and finally a hat for me
i understand now, the concept of how to knit a hat!
next challenge and this one has been a challenge mittens! over the last three weeks i have knit and un-knit measured finished and then un-knit again these two simple handcoverings
my patience has been tested my eyes crossed and uncrossed as i picked up the tiny stitches
the length is good on the second needs to redone on the first the thumb space is wrong on the first need unravel, again, the thumb on the first
i am quite confident that by the time i finish these mittens i will understand how to knit a mitten or two
how does one define oneself?
by family relationships?
by work? by interests?
