Sustainability by Michelle Edwards
Woman Knitting

Even as my sweater wintered uncompleted and a steady stream of noisier socks, shawls, mittens, gloves and hats budged their way ahead, I remained certain it was sustainable. This week, I added the last few rows on the front. The three needle bind off with the back was a breeze. I'm tackling the sleeves now, two at time, the way my mother taught me to do. Next week, on my morning walk by the pasture, I hope to show it off to the cows. Perhaps I'll snag an admiring moo.

My soon to be finished sweater is a simple stockinette with a little ribbing. Resuming was seamless. No learning curve demanded. Nothing complex or exotic to slow me down. Nothing that required an internet search for explanations of obscure acrobatic knitting procedures, subtitled YouTube demonstrations, or lengthy forum postings on Ravelry. Just a soft inviting yarn gliding through needles at 5 stitches to an inch.

My collection of knitting projects in tote bags was taking over my house! My solution was to purchase a free standing coat rack with 9 dowels for hanging and voila , all (well almost all...) tote bags are neatly hung and tucked away in the corner where the "project tree" lives.
