Example text

I was finally stepping over that dangerous line, ignoring it. And it was worth the risk. Now she has a green cabled sweater and a rugged gray one. She has one made from an old Mary Maxim pattern, with two country dancers on the back. I will state for the record: Intarsia equals love, period. But I think my favorite one I’ve made her is the one with the Space Invader on the lower right front—it’s just right, so her. So it seems that true love really does conquer all. It conquers petty arguments over vacuuming, financial troubles requiring meals made of lentils, and dismal choices regarding driving routes.

It would be the same amount of stitches, no matter how tiny the needle was, right? How hard could it be? Answer: so hard. I was used to knitting projects that could be worked in loud, crowded bars without difficulty. Cromarty was not that kind of 60 x x x A LIFE IN STITCHES knitting. I had to pay attention to the chart at the beginning of every single row. I started to wonder if the ThreadBear boys had placed too much trust in me. Maybe I just wasn’t a good enough knitter for this. Ripping back, something I rarely did, something that normally reduced me to fits of swearing, became old hat.

I fought silly tears. Would they take good enough care of her there? Would customers be too rough with her? I couldn’t bear to think about it, so to get my mind off her, I cast on for a top-down raglan in heavy worsted wool. It felt like back floating after the underwater maneuvers I’d been performing, and I finished the simple stockinette sweater in two weeks. Months later, when the box came back to me, I opened it carefully, reverentially. I lifted the sweater out, and even though it was a warm fall day, I layered it over a T-shirt, put the top down on my convertible, and drove across the Richmond Bridge to Dharma Trading in San Rafael.
