Knitting Almost Daily....

What is it about knitting that soothes the soul? I can have the most miserable of days and after ten minutes of knitting, all seems right with the world. I love the feel of the needle in each hand - wooden or bamboo only please (those metal needles are like scratching one's fingernails on a chalkboard) - and seeing the rows grow and grow.


My endeavors have been limited - a few hats and tons of wash/dish cloths.
Speaking of knitted clothes... this one is my absolute favorite!

This one has caused quite a few double takes.....and temporarily raised my cool factor with the younger set. No, it's not what you think. It's a Canadian Maple motif cloth. However....it still remains my favorite. And no, you can't bake it & smoke the residue.




And the "Five of Hearts".....a very pale one at that.....

A very pink butterfly....

A large heart - which goes to show that using varigated yarn is not a very good idea for most motifs.
Oh yes - I will be quilting shortly - but for now, knitting is good therapy.
