Thought for the day

I've been cruising the innernet trying to find wool shops "conincidentaly" close to our intended tour routes over the next few weeks (as in, "oh look what a COINCIDENCE there's a wool shop, can I just have a quick look"), and I came across this gem on the Selter (makers of Addis) website. Thought I'd share:

"The increasing popularity of knittig [sic] meets with the elementary desire to create something visible with your own hands, the yearning for peace and originality as a complement of stress of everyday life. In knitting and crochet every detail has a meaning. Repeats become a principle. Needles and wool become a source of personal traditions."

p.s. little time so far to hunt and gather, but I have an excuse now having finished the back of Geoff's Vest and needing a stitch holder which I didnt bring. *doh* Will report back soon.

Surely there's a wool shop on every other corner where you are? No. Wait. That's my fantasy world. Sounds like the knitting progresses well. I won't say that you could use waste yarn or a shoelace for that stitch holding business because obviously you need the right tool for the job.
Travel well. :)

I'll drink to that thought for the day. I like it a lot!

I love that, especially 'repeats become a principle'.

Happy hunting!

Lovely little paragraph, that one :)

Now - aren't you supposed to be writing an essay or something? I don't think I could do it on holiday... good luck!
