So apart from rehabilitating after knee surgery, and then a pandemic, I’ve rediscovered knitting. It brings a certain calmness to me, and brings me very much to the centre of my thoughts.
I found this really interesting article from The Cut by Madeleine Aggeler on Knitting to Keep My Hands Busy. I may not be an expert knitter, but like Madeleine I gain a lot from the simple crafting. I connect to all the folk in my ancestors who knitted, and those who will come after who will also knit to create for themselves and their families.
