I am an alpaca trapped in a human body. With an artichoke for a heart. Favorite activities include playing in the dirt, growing, and knitting, and listening to Radiohead. This bio doesn't allow for many characters so I'll leave it at that.
Putting Humpty Together Again
Knit one, purl one. Unravel. Start over. Grow. Repeat. My mother has been knitting for over fifty years. Over the past 25 years, she has received yarn donated and made countless items to donate to those in need in our community. I have many memories from my youth of watching in awe as her hands moved rapidly and rhythmically with the click-clink of the knitting needles. I’m still mesmerized when I see her knitting. For some reason, though, whenever I tried to learn the skills and process, I couldn’t seem to grasp them. Whether it was because I was too easily discouraged or too insecure, I gave up trying to learn.
