I’ve recently become an avid listener to you – as well as becoming an avid knitter and crotcheter. I was working on a project and came across this blog and thought you might get a kick out of it. In my opinion, the author is a fantastic knitter and writer – always inventive with her analogies and metaphors. The article I came across today is how stitch “families” help keep – or interfere with – the stability of other stitches. The whole post is great how knitting is like opera. I am also a classical singer, so this also reeled me in – particularly as I don’t enjoy singing opera because I’m unable to willingly sustain the suspension of disbelief that she so aptly describes. If you don’t have time to read the whole thing, the most pertinent part is Part 2: WHY KNITTING IS LIKE SOAP OPERA: The sad tale of NORM who has the support of his family and WANDA and LON who do not.
