The Stash (Part 3 of 3)

Continuing this backwards account of this ‘outside’ process: plan, make, finish, wear, this takes us to the stash. I wrote these posts in this order as truly, this is how I think to begin any new project.

Organization of the WIPs (Part 2 of 3)

Recently, when answering questions about knitting, I reflected upon my teaching.  I found myself comparing what I call the outside process of knitting:  plan, make, finish, wear to the process of planning a unit.  “What is it I want my students to know and be able to do at the end of the unit?” I would ask […]

What’s OUT and what’s IN regarding FO Storage (Part 1 of 3)

In reviewing  my last post called Keeping Site for Knitwear where I discuss my thoughts for storing hand knits or finished objects (FOs), I still feel very much the same way today as then regarding storage of this collection.  In reality however, I was not following one of my criteria, EASY ACCESS, I set for myself (which is odd) and […]

On Kindness

Gift bouquet for her, found on desk, brought home and admired by him. No card, but giver identified.   Flowers lovingly placed in a vase. A thank you for an act of kindness.  He positions, re-positions tulips in different rooms as the day wanes carefully carrying and turning the bouquet into the sunlight. She said it was for putting others first.  […]
