I knit for peace, charity, and the hope of better things to come.
I knit because I fidget. I'm a flibberty-gibbet.
I knit for babies, kids, sick friends and strangers.
No, they don't always want it. Sometimes it's ugly. But it's all been made with lot's of laughter and fun near by. I guess that knocks out the quiet part.
Right now I'm making a baby blanket out of an Alpaca Soysilk blend. It's so fancy, and silky and beautiful. That's the yarn I'm talking about. I'm hoping the blanket follows suit.
I also have a cotton blanket in the works. Mostly because I didn't know what else to do with the yarn. When all else fails...I go to Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth pattern. No, really, when it's done up large, it's a nice square blanket. Done in cheap cotton, hello dishcloths.
I used to mock PK because all she ever knit was dishcloths. I totally get it now. Hands busy, no thinking, finished project. It's pretty sweet.
