Barbara Kingsolver on Knitting as Creation Story
"It starts with a craving to fill the long evening downslant. There will
be whole wide days of watching winter drag her skirts across the
mud-yard from east to west, going nowhere. You will want to nail down
all these wadded handfuls of time, to stick-pin them to the blocking
board, frame them on a twenty-four-stitch gauge. Ten to the inch, ten
rows to the hour, straggling trellises of days held fast in the acreage
of a shawl. Time by this means will be domesticated and cannot run away.
You pick up sticks because time is just asking for it, already lost
before it arrives, scattering trails of leavings." More in this
evocative essay by Barbara Kingsolver.
