If you visit me here often, you know I love to knit! I knit almost everyday and I knit with a passion. There is something about picking up those two sticks and casting on that has comforted me since that very first stitch. That repetitive motion, that soothing click...for me it's both therapeutic and meditative. It clears my head, reminds me to breath, allows me to relax. Yes, I LOVE this knitting and I appreciate how it has changed me and my life. Something powerful happened when I started knitting and it became a bit of a serious thing for me. I've decided, for me, that's all because of the thinking that's involved -- whether I'm knitting a sweater for my child or knitting a toy for another, all the while I am working, with every stitch comes a new thought or vision of complete love of my child wearing it or the child who will be playing with it...JOY. It's been such a wonderful gift in my life and has made me feel such an appreciation and connection to other knitters and others knitted goods.
So, last week when I spotted this lovely, little, sweater dress (made by a fellow local knitter, Peggy) I completely fell in love and had to have it for my beauty -- Haila! And Hooray, last night I was the lucky one to bring it home from the Library Auction...
Miss Haila loves it too!
