This is Janelle who just finished her first strand of finger knitting. Almost 4, she has yearned to develop this skill for at least a year. This weekend, her Dad learned himself to do this AND taught her! He is a great Dad. Kurt is still in awe of Daria who can knit quite quickly with needles now, having made 1 doll blanket and 1 side of her first purse, she is working hard on the 2nd side and has knit more, and more smoothly, in the past 2 days than ever! Here they are upon wake up yesterday morning. We are back to waking early (before 7) – perhaps following a yearning to knit!
I am a beginner knitter myself, and am enjoying the feel of the wool and the ability to create. It is hard for me to sit still and just knit… but it is a learned practice, and is good for my soul. The other soul-nourishing part of my life right now is blueberries!!! This is one food that I find hard to combine with anything else, bake with, blend, or otherwise disrupt its perfection. Don’t they taste perfect just they way they are?
