Like many knitters, I have been working on the Project Peace Cowl.
This is where I was on December 4th. Right on track.
And this is where I was Monday night after town meeting. Less progress? How is that possible? I’ll give you a hint.
join in the round, taking care not to twist
Yep. Twisted. And I didn’t notice until I had completed 7.5 rounds.
So. Ripped and reknit, this time with a 4 row garter stitch edge and, most importantly no twist.
Issues aside, I’m enjoying the pattern and the prompts related to peace that go along with it. So much, in fact, that I have decided that peace is going to be my One Little Word for 2016. I’ve been tossing a few words around for a while now but last week the word peace just clicked for me.
I’ll talk more about it, I’m sure, but for now I’m just thinking about how I can incorporate more peace into my life. Knitting for peace definitely worked Monday night at town meeting when someone, on speaking to the article to approve applying for a grant for a library renovation and expansion project, called libraries a luxury. I was furious and nearly jumped out of my seat to give a lecture on the importance of libraries and to talk about how libraries level the playing field among the haves and the have nots. But I didn’t. I kept my head down and I knit on. And the article passed!
Maybe there really is something to this knitting and peace thing.
