The Process of Knitting


31 Days to Become a Better Writer - Day 15

Today's Challenge:
Write a post involving a recipe or a process, but try to infuse the post with your personality or thoughts. Don’t over think this one. Brushing your teeth, cooking macaroni and cheese, and grocery shopping are all seemingly mundane processes, but they are intriguing when we see them from your perspective. Word to the wise, steer clear of the “and then I” syndrome.

coffee + malabrigo = yummy

Clickity clack. Clickity clack.

Needle through the stitch, left to right, front to back. Wrap the yarn, pull it through. Slip the stitch off. Sip of coffee.

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

The rhythm of knitting.

The rhythm of life.

This row, then the next.

Two sticks and a ball of yarn. Transformation.

What will it be? What will the work of my hands create?
A scarf, a hat, a shawl, a blanket, a treasure.

Clickity clack. Clickity clack.

  1. You always seem to find such neat pictures that go with whatever you are doing.... :-)

  2. If I had written that I would have had to add the part about me fumbling, dropping the needles, dropping a stitch and ripping it out to start over. If you did that stitch in the photo, you do beautiful work. I ever got past knit and purl.

  3. No, the photo is not my work (credit is at the bottom of the post) but I've knit quite a few things since teaching myself to knit about 8 years ago. If you can knit and purl, then you're good to go. Everything else is based off those 2 stitches. :)

  4. Okay, now I want to learn how to knit! I like the picture you paint. Transformation!

  5. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting Ramona! You should definitely give knitting a try. :)

  6. This was perfect! You made me want to learn to knit. I've tried, it was ugly. Thanks for linking up with me on Friday!

  7. You can do it Amy. Find a local yarn store and they will be more than happy to help. Thanks for visiting and commenting! :)

  8. I wanted to know how to knit. I like the color of the background of this blog. I will try to learn knit.

  9. I would suggest looking on youtube for knitting videos. That is a good way to learn. Or go to your local yarn store and see about getting lessons. Good luck!
