Purling in Another Language<< All Articles
I’m back from STITCHES, and am proud to tell you that I can now do the purl stitch in three different languages—German, English and Norwegian. Knowing how large my stash of yarn already is, Wayne said, when I got home, "Surely you didn’t buy more." I assured him I didn’t buy a single skein and then asked if he’d be willing to roll the multiple skeins I did purchase. ( He should have known better than to ask! )
While at STITCHES I heard a wonderful story about an older woman who was an avid knitter. She and her husband were downsizing, and he asked her what she intended to do with all her yarn. He said, “My goodness, you must have a hundred dollars worth of yarn packed away.” That story had those of us with huge stashes rolling in the aisles.
