Maybe you buy yarn with a specific, definite project in mind. Maybe you buy yarn because you find it to be lovely or soft or warm and don’t worry about projects. Maybe you buy yarn thinking to use it in one project, change your mind, find a new project, change your mind again, and you just keep that up for nice long while.
A ball of yarn isn’t only a long string of wool or cotton or acrylic. A ball of yarn is a possibility. Its something that might happen, something that might be. Its an unknown future thing.
And then it starts to take a shape and a size and a function. I just love that.
(In other words I’m really enjoying knitting on my stranded knit Victorian-style sleep cap and couldn’t stop long enough to write up much of a post today. I’m having too much fun with yarn.)
I dwell in Possibility
by Emily Dickinson
Here is to finding the joy in all possibilities.
