I have this theory...that if we taught all the leaders in the world to knit, we wouldn't have war.
The sweater is coming along nicely in spite of a few setbacks along the way.
Setback Number one occurred when I discovered I had twisted the stitches during the process of joining the stitches into a circle. Ripping.
Setback Numbe rtwo occurred when I realized well into the second ball of wool that the sweater - which is for me by the way - is too small. More ripping.
Setback Number three occurred when the sleeves were joined to the body and I took a look at things, made a judgement call and decided it wouldn't work - sloppy - looked homemade, not handmade. Sigh - ripping.again.
But now, I think things are at last the way they should be and we are moving on with confidence.
Of course, none of this is earth shaking. But I'm going on record here to say that I believe in Inclusion, not Exclusion. I believe in diversity. I don't care what colour you are or what religion you practice. I believe in kindness to all.
And freedom and joy to be who you are.
