On the Needles

Decided to make another great pattern I had seen on BeatKnit's blog a
few years ago. I have made another previously out of brown bamboo
that I had received from a SP a while back. I love how comfortable
it feels; extra warmth with not the extra bulk. I love layers but, not
soooo many that you look 10 lbs. heavier.

My SP Rocks!

After running some errands this morning I came home & found a box had arrived
from my SP. INside I found the latest copy of Interweave Knits zine, 4 rose sachets that smell divine, some dark chocolate treats, a felted bag, 2 hand made wash
cloths; the pattern I recognized from Mason Dixon Knitting, 2 skeins of some
lovely wool from South America and my most fav book Domiknitrix. I loved the
care and time she took to know what I love. Thanks SP you are AWEsome!

Why KnittingSutra

It seems to be an old cliche to misunderstand certain words that we
use or misuse in our culture that may come from some profoundness in
another part of the world. People often are misled to think that my
blog name is inappropriate yet and often people do not know the meaning
of "Sutra." So, from Sanskrit "siv" to sew: sutra means "That which runs
through and hold things together." Having nothing at all to do with
the Kama Sutra which is the coming together and holding of ...
I feel that my whole life is a basis of those things which hold me
together; hence, KnittingSutra suits me perfect.
