I am knitting the Drop Stitch Lace Tank from Fitted Knits and am really enjoying it. It looks like it should be complicated, but it is not at all. I love the form that the stitch pattern makes.
The droplets remind me of the work of Ruth Asawa. Her sculptures were among my favorite pieces when I visited the de Young a couple of years ago.
I must be in a philosophical mood because when I look at these images, it makes me reflect how each action creates waves of consequences. I think, for example, about how a decision to start this little blog has helped me "meet" an ever-expanding circle of people. One person links to another, who links to another, and another, and the ripples get wider and wider, and I am suddenly connected to people who I would not otherwise have known . This week, I met Chris, and we had a nice chat and lunch. Janet, whose blog I stalked, turned out to live very close to me. She generously gave me her extra copy of Greetings From Knit Cafe after reading that I had intended to buy it at Knit Cafe but that they had run out. And though I have not yet met her in person, I discovered that Farrah and I share a lot in common, including our taste in knits. She was kind enough to get me a much-coveted copy of Paton's Street Smart, and we're going to do our own mini KAL for the cabled hoodie. Aren't ripples fun?
