Why I Knit: Washington Post writer Ruth Marcus elegantly meditates on what knitting means to her and to the larger community of women.
Writer Will Batchelor weighs in – very sensibly – on the fuss kicked up about the knitter at Wimbledon. Fab piece, and I particularly enjoyed the image it evoked of Will’s grandmother. (Reminded me of my grandmother…) Key quote: “A basic ribbing stitch/ tennis match combination would have been a doddle.” It feels good to be understood. Thanks Will!
