The Space Between the Stitches
In a recent conversation with knitting designer Jane Thornley, we discussed the magic of the "space between the stitches".
We were reflecting on what is was that was so special about the activity of knitting. Not just the creation of a functional garment or the play of beautiful colours or the pleasure of making a gift for someone. All these are real pleasures, to be sure.
But there is something more. Something undefinable. Something beyond the obvious.
It happens when we lose ourselves in the spaces between the stitches.
Best wishes for a Happy New Year to all!
