The View From My Knitting Place
The Itch

On the Grid

It's February. . . a month filled with thoughts of love . . .

(and chocolate!)

I thought that it might be fun to share some of the things I especially . . . love. . . during the month of February.

I'm not talking about the things you already know I . . . love. . . like knitting and gardening and reading and my family and Jenny.  No, this month, I thought I'd share some of the things I . . . love. . . that you probably don't know about me.

Like. . . I'll bet you'll be surprised to find out that I'm strangely drawn to . . . and love . . . GRIDS!

Grids?

Yeah.

For some reason, I find things arranged in grid patterns Most Pleasing! 

I have these lovely ceramic pieces hanging on my living room walls.

I adore them! 

Everywhere you look in my house, there are grids.

On the walls.  Propped up on shelves.

When things are arranged in grid patterns, I'm drawn like a magnet! 

(I even have a Pinterest board called "Grids" . . . where I collect images of grid patterns I especially like.)

My attraction is not just to straight-line grids, either.  I like circle grids.

And arched grids.

And grid patterns of all shape and design.

I'm often pulled to grid-like projects. . .

like afghans and quilts.

There's just something about . . . the grid!

I just . . . love . . . them!

And I notice them.  Everywhere!

Yup, I'm the same way. Wallpaper with squares, plaid fabric, things all lined up and in nice neat order! Knitting is a little that too...all rows and columns. :)

Carole

I never really thought about all the places grids appear before - cool post and I loved seeing all your photos, too.

Cookie

Yes! Neatly lined row upon row is kind of wonderful, isn't it? :D

Vicki

I get ya!! ; )

Cynthia

Your wall pieces looked like deconstructed quilts to me. I love pattern and organized shapes so much - it is cool how much you see all around you when you start looking for it.

Rachel

I swear I commented earlier. It was the first comment too,,, maybe I missed that code and didn't notice it or something,,,

I said: In that case you would love Jerusalem where they have (or used to have) a bylaw that all houses must have stone on the outside. So many building are covered with beautiful hand carved (or whatever you call it) Jerusalem stones that create wonderful grids - they are all over the place!

Mary

very cool! especially love the travel photos.

I love grids, too, but instead of embracing that love I do my best to run from it. Grids look too "ordinary". The grids you have in your world are a little different than the usual and they feel peaceful and comforting.
