Life seems that much better when a knitting project is going well.
Ironically when things go wrong with my life, eerily, things simultaneously go wrong with my knitting and
everything feels like a major mess up.
However, lace is another story….
….. lace has always been major drama for me at some point along the way.
I call it my “gentle torture”
For this one, I thought the drama would start with the knitted on border (a first for me).
But no, the initial awkwardness dissipated about 2 repeats in and the knitting
has taken on the same soothing rhythm as the main body.
The border does go slow, but I don’t care. I find peace in every stitch and I’m amazed at
the way these interlocking loops
and circles create such a beautiful pattern.
There is just enough variation to keep me awake
and just enough repetition to induce a meditative mind state.
