After finishing Ann Hoods The Knitting Circle the other day, I realized I tend to knit when I am unable to garden. Gardening is to me what knitting is to knitters! I knit when the weather turns cool and there isnt much to do in the garden but watch the last blooms of the year. I knit through the winter, stopping when the garden catalogs begin to arrive in the mailbox. I knit during the times of Summer and early fall when it is just too hot and humid for me to be outside in it and I hide out in the air conditioning. I knit when I am unable to write. I knit when I feel the stirring to do so in my chest.
