I’m very proud to announce that I have finished my first knitting project: a rolled-edge hat. It’s a bit too small for a woman’s head (since I was pretty impatient and didn’t exactly follow the pattern to the suggested full measurements) but I love it.
I love that winding string around sticks actually produces useful clothing! I also find knitting very soothing and meditative despite my beginner’s skill level. Handling such wonderful earthy materials- wood & wool – in a repetitive motion creates a soft rhythm for calm reflection and gentle productivity. On to the next project!
