"Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, from: Letters and Biographical Sketches, 1883
A wool winter sweater in shades of blue mixed with warm golds, and rust red; lovingly hand knit by my mom and so warm that it can protect against the coldest of winter winds. Knitting has become her passion although her hands are stiff and painful from arthritis; seeing a pattern appear or a sock take form or a sweater emerge from a ball of yarn is miraculous to her. As for me, I've tried but with knitting I am all thumbs.
