"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up."
February is a month typically designated for "LOVE" but i have learned that a true friend loves at ALL times .... shares their knitting stash, their knitting experiences, and patterns, and progress ... secrets for ripping out, collecting coupons for sales (in support the SABLE mentality ... Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy) and any new tricks of the trade that make things easier, fun and/or do-able!
February's lace lessons are much like the life lessons that Love teaches us .. patience ultimately produces good things - whether we are counting stitches, yarn overs, increases or decreases. Holes in knitting (on purpose this time!)are similar to rests in music .... too many notes can create chaos for the listener; too many stitches makes for a solid piece of cloth - but those delicate and deliberately placed holes, dispersed in patterns amongst the knits and purls, soon produces a heart that reflects a journey ... one stitch at a time ...
the joy is so often in the journey or the creation itself .... but knowing that we are loved and that we have friends to share the journey AND the conclusion with makes each day a precious gift. Click Here Check out the Pattern Drawer here to get started on February's addition.
Happy Valentine's Day my friends!
