I reckon we could be in the running for one of those rare-as-hens’-teeth, short and snappy, Myrtle and Eunice posts. There is no story to weave in to the latest crafting escapade, no fly by the seat of the pants parenting disaster. There is only pure, unadulterated, stitch by knitty stitch repetition, the odd bit of unknitting, then knitting again.
Ishbel isn’t so very difficult, but she isn’t waiting-for-the-gymnast, or playing-Connect Four-with-the-Middle-(who does not subscribe to any fast game is a good game! theory)-while-the-youngest-sits-on-my-head, craft. Slippery needles and Eki Riva Alpaca 4ply and the fact that I’m up to the lace bit requires some application.
Ishbel is all the things I love about knitting: the textures, the hard-yards process. So far, for me, sewing is about reaching the finishing line relatively unscathed. But knitting is all about the bit between A and B.
It’s only about the making.
See a whole lot more space-making via Kirst’s place...
