I am away from my workbench. My hands were idle. In times of emotional uncertainty and instability it feels good to knit. It is an amazing thing to be able to make fabric out of a ball of fluffy string. Progress is slow and even. When a garment is finished I even surprise myself when I look at all the stitches that I myself have made, one at a time. For this project I am using Rowan Colourscape yarn by Kaffe Fassett which is just beautiful. It is like knitting with a set of smudged chalky pastels, one colour slowly bleeding and fading into the next.
