A hat for the baby …
I wanted to make something for him or her.
I wanted to knit in the round.
I wanted to learn how to use double pointed needles.
” Every knitter stitches with love, even when they’re just starting, all red-faced and frustrated. Why else would we create? Especially in a world that doesn’t need homemade anything. That’s when we need homemade everything. Kate Jacobs, The Friday Night Knitting Club.
(I finished this book a long time ago, I just saw it on the shelf the other day and was reminded of this quote as I was knitting. Book was average at best, but I could not agree with the sentiment of the above quote more. We all need a little something unique, crafted, purposed in our life!)
