As has been echoed over and over these days, humanity feels precarious, a time to cherish being alive.
My cancer experience and recent events have caused me to crystallize my vision for the remainder of my life. I used to think I had to live into some grand gesture, not just accomplishment, but that I needed to be doing something more than I am to make a living, more than I am to give to others.
Now I have my sights set on this: To cultivate a peaceful life and radiate peace.
Part of making peace is definitely making through my craft, and after a several month knitting hiatus and healing post cancer treatment, I have a few objects to share.
1) Cedar Brook Pullover by Tamy Gore - Ella Rae DK Superwash Merino wool used
2) Inclinations Shawl by Andrea Mowry - Self-striping 50/50 wool/acrylic blend, DK Skeinz wool. I intend to make a larger and more colorful one with many different stripes.
3) Cozy Comfort Throw by A Homespun House - Bio Balance yarn, 50/50 cotton/wool with colorful strand of Wensleydale Gems wool. Plan to change colors to use scraps as I go once these colors are gone.
4) Spring Shoots Tam by Kate Davies

Staying close to the wealth of nature and making with my hands bring me greatest joy and comfort. You can find me on Instagram as @waterwomanknits, and on Ravelry as Waterwoman-Knits.
