The Love of Knitting

An article written by Karin Schott in the February 1, 2016 Huffington Post, The Ex-Husband Sweater, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/karin-schott/the-exhusband-sweater_b_9132208.html speaks to the emotional investment a knitter has to her work.  How many of you can understand her thoughts expressed in the article?  I certainly do.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.

    I’m not a knitter and didn’t know about the sweater curse but that was a great article to read. We humans do find symbolism everywhere we look, don’t we?

    I too have never knitted a sweater for my second husband and we’ve been married 32 years. Nice to hear from you. XO Mary Lou
