The photo above is a knitting work in progress. It's a throw made of log cabin squares for my son and his wife. I made one for my daughter, and it took two years. This one is on target for about that long. I've always got at least three projects going at once, and I try to do at least a little bit every day. On Sundays, I can sometimes spend all of Masterpiece Theatre knitting, or maybe a movie. But the goal is to have some time every day for the pleasure of seeing something new take shape under my hands, the pleasure of the colors and texures of the yarn, and of the needles, the pleasure of knowing my sister Anne and good friend Susan (both of whom have given me skeins and skeins of yarn at various times) know what I'm working on, and I know what they are working on. So many pleasures. So much to give thanks for.
