My PA (that's personal assistant and not Prince Albert) gave me as a New Year's gift a daily calendar called "Knit Bits". It has a little piece about knitting for each day of the year. I thought it might be fun to share them here throughout the year.
Dec 31 - Jan 1 Knitting can be solace, inspiration, adventure. It is manual and mental therapy. It keeps us warm as well as those we like and love. It has existed almost as long as the soft sheep, and in giving us wool they are deprived ony of an uncomfortably warm fur coat in the heat of the summer.
