An Ode to Knitting Slow

turtle[1]Take your time.

Go slow.

Feel.

Each.

Stitch.

The rasp of wool

on wooden needles.

Soft alpaca

against tired fingers.

Sip tea

and work

oh

so

carefully.

No deadline.

No pressure.

Just wool and needles and lots of time.

Knitting Fast: A quick poem

flat,550x550,075,f[1]Deadlines and patterns and projects to do,

Notebooks and printouts, I’ve more than a few.

More than ten projects that need to get done,

But into my free time, I can fit only one.

I push myself, make my needles go faster,

┬áHope that this sweater won’t be a disaster!
