“The folklore among knitters is that everything handmade should have at least one mistake so an evil spirit will not become trapped in the maze of perfect stitches.  A missed increase or decrease, a crooked seam, a place where the tension is uneven-the mistake is a crack left open to let in the light.”

~from the essay “Yarn” by Kyoko Mori

Grace of our failures

Life consolable again

The hands still dreaming
