|My new sink fixtures!|
And here is a picture of the sink fixtures in the box before my husband installed it. I think the installation my husband did is pretty close to the way it's supposed to look!
|My first knit Market Bag!|
So the knitting of this market bag along with everything else I attempt to do by hand does connect me to the women that have gone before me in a way no history lesson, book or movie could. Many admire my knitting and then say, "but I just don't have the patience or time". Really? You don't need patience to do any of the handcrafts. The completing of the task provides the patience. Many studies have shown that knitting (or any handcraft) provides the same mind benefit or flow that practicing Yoga does. So, don't think I'm wasting my time. At all.
