a light in the window
Since taking these pictures, I’ve knitted five rows of four squares and promptly stalled on the edges. I’m waffling on whether to knit the edge in one colour or continue using a random number of colours. I need to be in decision-making mode. Regardless, I love this blanket. I love its squishy garter-stitch goodness. I used 10 skeins of worsted-weight wool leftover from past projects. I look at it, and I see Ella’s classic navy cabled sweater, my much-loved light blue wrap cardigan, a grey sleeveless tunic, my bright teal lace-yoke cardigan, my giant fair-isle pullover, and countless mittens. It’s a keeper.
And I’ve taken to watching documentaries again. I think I love them so much because they are so passionate, so real, so gritty, so breath-taking, so touching, so intelligent, so outrageous, so grievous, and yet so inspiring. It’s like brain food and soul food all in one. If you’re looking for a little of that, here are a few recommendations:
- Inside Job
- Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer
- Waiting for Superman
- God Grew Tired of Us
- A Place at the Table
- The Cove
- The Up Series
- Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father
- Anything by Michael Moore
