Nope, I Didn't Make It

One of my coworkers, seeing I was knitting something during lunch, told me he had a "giant handknit sweater from Ireland." I incredulously asked if he was speaking of an Aran fisherman's sweater. He had no idea, but he was kind enough to bring it in for me to see.


I don't feel drawn to knit a sweater like this, but I appreciate the heck out of it. Part of me is filled with hope that someday after I'm gone, a knitter will look at something I made and recognize the time and effort that went into it.

Look around. Art is everywhere.

  1. See, I would totally knit that! But that's what I love about this craft; there really is something in knitting for everyone, something that appeals to all of us, individually. Yet because we all have a love for the craft, we appreciate even the things we wouldn't enjoy taking on.
