'Weave on with confidence and hope through all crises'
I've paraphrased the words of the beloved knitting-writer and teacher Elizabeth Zimmermann, who famously said, "Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises." I adore her, as do most all knitters.
Some other Zimmermann quotes that resonate now more than ever:
"Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either."
"Now, let us all take a deep breath and forge on into the future; knitting at the ready."
So, taking a deep breath, here's what I've been weaving.
And so I weave, despite worrying that it's not feeding anybody, but knowing that it feeds my spirit. And hoping too that it feeds others in some wordless way.
