Going on and coming up

The big transition

Transition

Hi there,

This is a week of transition. The cool morning air and the shifting of the light tell us fall is coming. School is starting. Summer's relaxed lifestyle gives way to a more structured one. A million tiny transitions each move us forward. Every night to day, every row from knit to purl and back again. These are not tough. We’ve made these transitions a thousand times. We know what to expect and how to handle them. Colton, going back to school for his senior year is so unlike the freshman who worried about finding his classes in the high school labyrinth. This year is No Big Deal. It’s the big transitions, the shift from the familiar and comfortable to the new and unknown, that stress us. I'm sure Colton's transition to college next year will be another story.

As knitters, depending on our experience, we might worry about the transition from our sweater's back to the prospect of armholes. Or turning our sock's heel. Or transforming knitted pieces into a finished garment. continue reading
