With the exception of my very first project, I have neither knitted anything for myself nor have received a hand knitted gift.
I am happy to report that this all changed during my recent trip to Germany. We often find what we may be after in the most unusual and unexpected places.
“A thought went up my mind to-day
That I have had before,
But did not finish,--some way back,
I could not fix the year,
Nor where it went, nor why it came
The second time to me,
Nor definitely what it was,
Have I the art to say.
But somewhere in my soul, I know
I've met the thing before;
It just reminded me--'t was all--
And came my way no more.
― Emily Dickinson
