Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

Time has laid his hand
  Upon my heart gently, not smiting it,
  But as a harper lays his open palm
  Upon his harp, to deaden its vibrations.

The Golden Legend. iv

Time has passed since my last post. So many reasons could be given but I think the simplest and most concise will do: Life.

None of the time between then (my last post) and now has been wasted. Instead, it has been full of learning, changing, and accepting. My knitting and designs have been influenced in positive ways. I want to help others experience the sense of accomplishment and deep contentment I feel when a completed knitting project looks good and fits well. Whether it is socks, sweaters, shawls, scarves or whatever it is we choose to knit, I believe we have a right to know all the ins and outs that it takes for us to get there. To this end I am committed.

I am working on two baby sweater designs, actually one is a vest for the little man in your life, both of which were inspired by fashions of the 1920’s. More next time. And pictures too.

It’s good to be back.
