Submission: Pillow to Knitscene

Every time I knit bulky wool on big needles, my hands hurt for two or three days. And every time my hands hurt for two or three days, I swear I’m never knitting bulky wool on big needles again.

But do you think I listen to myself?

Last week, I mailed my submission to Knitscene for their Accessories 2015 issue.

It’s for a pillow knit in bulky wool on big needles.

Using yarn left over from my Very Blackberry Pullover.

Time heals all wounds, you know.

On another note, I’m starting to list some vintage items for sale in my Etsy shop. I’ve added a Vintage on Etsy page to my blog where you can see them.

To Ponder:  I say, beware of all enterprises that require new clothes, and not rather a new wearer of clothes. If there is not a new man, how can the new clothes be made to fit? If you have any enterprise before you, try it in your old clothes. All men want, not something to do with, but something to do, or rather something to be. Perhaps we should never procure a new suit, however ragged or dirty the old, until we have so conducted, so enterprised or sailed in some way, that we feel like new men in the old, and that to retain it would be like keeping new wine in old bottles. |Henry David Thoreau|
