#knitting: A Sweater's Yarn

I’m one of the participating artisans in the Salt Spring Island seasonal gallery ArtCraft. Year after year my baby sweaters are always popular. Last year, I thought, my baby sweaters sell well. I wonder if an adult sweater would? So I designed and knit this…


I delivered my inventory to ArtCraft with the understanding that I would never see the sweaters again.
Last Friday I attended a writers’ symposium where my brain was stuffed full of information. (I’ll tell you more about it tomorrow—stay logged on). We broke for lunch and I lined up at the buffet table. I filled my plate and began to make my way back to my seat. The woman standing in front of me was wearing a red tweed cardigan. That looks familiar. I tapped the woman on the shoulder so she would turn around. She did. Yeah, that could be…“That’s a pretty cardigan. Where did you get it?”
“Thank you. It’s one of my favourites. I’m from Salt Spring Island. I bought it from a gallery—“
“ArtCraft,” we said in unison.
I smiled. “Do you know who knit it?”

: ) Thank you for those kind words Laurie. But, unfortunately, it's a one-of-a-kind.
Who knows what I'll knit this year?
