I was trying to come up with reasons that I love to knit… but I couldn’t articulate what it was or is. So I decided to make a mosaic of knitting to communicate through (other people’s) pictures.
A few things I will say though is that all you non-knitters (who actually have the desire to knit) can most definitely do it. I have only been knitting for about two years after being convinced by the Nappy Networkers and with the ever helpful website www.knittinghelp.com
I love that it’s a connection to the hand-crafty women of my past
I love that it is a community
I love that the products are determined by the knitter
I love that it is revolutionary
I love that it makes idle time productive
I love that it doesn’t require technology
I love that it takes time
And I love that I now have a skill that I may be able to pass on to Hannah.
Ooooo lookit that. Turns out I can make a list of why I love it. I maintain that the pics say it better. BTW – click it to head to flickr and see it better.
