fabric with soul

 

Why do we bother to take so much time and labor actually knitting something when there are so many good machine knitwears? They are durable, inexpensive…
Why?
Because, we must stubbornly believe that all the care our hands give to each and every stitch creates something more than just a “look.”  It may be subtle, but we know when we wear and touch a hand knit item, we can feel the thoughts of the person, who made it. It becomes a companion that ages with us, and shares with us a history. It is a fabric with soul.
