Norwegian Mittens
12/16/2010

The snow is falling, snow upon snow. It is as if the earth is decorating itself and getting ready for Christmas.

I was reading EZ’s December entry in her Knitter’s Almanac and savored her words:

“The human heart hankers after stability and tradition. The feeling and atmosphere of Christmases past, the anticipation of those to come, and the magic presence of Christmas now should all blend and blur, giving the distraught soul something to hang on to…”

Isn’t that lovely?

Ah, EZ, you knew what was good  – that which is simple.

I’m knitting away on the next project in Knitting Around. The Norwegian Mittens. So far I have knit the cuff. I keep thinking of last minute gifts that need to be knit. Also, baking and cleaning and visiting with friends have been getting in the way. But I realize that is the spirit of EZ, isn’t it?

I have also begun to realize that I am not going to make my 1 year deadline. Perhaps if life did not throw me such curve balls as it did this past year, I would have made it. But, that is life and so I will accept the fact that I will not make the deadline… and keep knitting!

Knit with pleasure, my friends!
