Knitting

I love to create things with my hands. I think it goes nicely with writing, a predominantly mind-centered activity. I’ve spent way too much money on yarn and knitting books, but when I see a wonderful fiber blend or a book on Nordic sweater patterns, I cannot resist. Here’s a few of the things I’ve knitted.

Purple Fair Isle Vest – My own color palette. I altered a pattern to fit.
