The last little while has been pretty intense, both personally and, well, you know. Amid all the chaos, I am so very grateful for knitting. Surprise twist: I found myself relaxing even more while doing the seaming. What?! I’ve never been a fan of seaming! And, okay, I’m still not. But whereas I can knit away on even complex cables without paying much attention, sewing up forces me to really slow down. To look at the work and take my time. And apparently that’s something I’ve really been in need of.
Plus, while you sew up you get to admire the beauty of what you’re making, and how neatly it all comes together, and that is just a freaking delight.
