lace knit scarf

Another practice I took up when I became a parent – not to make baby clothes, but to keep my mind quiet and focused when I would have otherwise lost it. The only thing I had ever done with the needle arts previously was basic sewing and embroidery, once I got the hang of knitting (continental style, where the yarn and needles are never out of both hands), I found I loved it. I continue to work on projects now and then, but my favorite thing of all is to knit lace, whether that’s with lace weight yarn or not. Even so, I always improvise on what I am making – in my creative life I feel absolutely against bending to anyone else’s ideas.
