"Busy hands and idle minds have knitted many a sweater; busy minds and idle hands have knitted many a brow."
--- Maryrose Wood in The Unseen Guest
When you last heard from me about my knitting, I was knitting a sweater. It was a lovely pattern, with a lovely yarn, but a color that was . . . well. Not what I expected. I knit on anyway. But it was not bringing me ANY joy in this Time of Coronavirus.
And that was about the same time I read this post and I saw this sweater and knew that I could find joy in a quick, comforting, wrap-up, homebound kind of knit. Especially - ESPECIALLY - in a cheering, happy color.
So I put away the depressing brown-or-maybe-teal-and-kinda-camo sweater (for now), and started knitting with some lovely blue yarn in a shade called "delphinium."
In these unraveling days.
How about YOU? Are you keeping your hands busy and your mind idle?
