• Purl:
    1. To knit with a reverse stitch. 2. Thread made of twisted gold or silver wire. 3. To flow with a curling or rippling motion as a shallow stream does over stones.

  • Random murmurings on knitting, with occasional digressions, by an oblivious dreamer who finds herself tripping through life. For more projects, check out my sewing blog as well.

I'm going to start skulking around the various donation centers in your town. I'll purge my stuff to make room for someone else's stuff. I do agree that it is all too overwhelming -- the pressure to do, to know, etc. I think of the Holly Hunter movie, Living Out Loud. She's watching the evening news, and all of the bad stuff in the world is just rushing at her, and she's having this stressful internal dialog about "how can I stop it?". Sometimes, we just need to push away from the computer, turn off the television, make a pot of tea and open a good book. Happy Fourth!
