Knitting Cheesy Holes In The Wide Earth

You would think, if you could see my knitting up close, that making holes in my work is one thing I don’t need help doing. But you’d be wrong. Well, you’d be right, actually, but there’s a difference between a deliberate hole (laciness) and an inadvertent hole (laziness). My friend Bonnie is trying to school me in yarn-overs. As an aid, I’ve found this How To Make A Knitted Yarn-Over For Dummies page.

KnitAnother friend (yes, I have two — Indeed, I have more than two) recommended this page on cheese-making, which reminds me why I don’t make cheese. I adore this woman’s nickname: The Procraftinator. Wonderful stuff!

Finally, I highly recommend this beautiful, insightful, chilling, inspiring, wonderful blog: The Wide Earth Smallholding. From Yemen to the US, from gardening to animals to homeschooling to parenting in places/times of crisis, this blog hums quietly through the world and makes me calm.

It also makes me want to make cheese and knit.

      I’m excited to see the blogs you choose and to read your list of things about you. My mother taught me how to knit last year (she’s been trying for years, but I finally was able to do it!). I enjoy it very much. There’s something very satisfying about taking string (yarn) and turning it into something warm and pretty. Maybe someday I’ll be able to make something besides scarves and shawls and mufflers.
