wabi sabi

and adventures in vicarious knitting

The Log Cabin Moderne blanket from the first Mason-Dixon Knitting book has been in my project queue for a few years, so I was really pleased when my friend Denise told me she was going to make one and invited me to help her pick out yarn (Blue Sky worsted cotton from loop). Here it is in glorious progress. Denise works on it at meetings and concerts and little league games contentedly unpicking and ripping (or not as she pleases) when heated exchanges or beautiful passages or wild pitches make her fingers skip a stitch. She's my icon of zen knitting.

So heartwarming!
