Example text

To them, I looked engrossed, while in reality, I was just doing the knit stitch, over and over, around and around. I could have easily done this if I’d been dropped down a pitch black well. I was so grateful to have my sock—I was hiding in plain sight, just like I used to with cigarettes. Everyone ignores the girl smoking while leaning against the concrete wall, no one makes eye contact. I loved that knitting brought me back that anonymity. The sisters didn’t notice me (or buy the book, for that matter).

It would be mine. I blogged about wanting to make the sweater, and Michigan’s ThreadBear Fiber Arts offered to give me yarn if I knitted it as a shop model for their store. They’d display it for six months, and then they’d mail it back to me, a win-win situation. I agreed, and they sent me fifteen skeins of Koigu Kersti in a luscious variegated brown. I sat down and picked up a US size four needle. I’m a loose knitter, after all. This was an important sweater—I was actually going to do a gauge swatch.

The finest merino, baby alpaca—even cashmere wasn’t off-limits. Heck, I was going to save four bucks a day by not buying cigarettes. I could almost afford qiviut. The Mayo Clinic in Minnesota says that keeping the hands busy by taking up knitting can help with quitting smoking, and med-school doctors note that knitting lowers your heart rate, your blood pressure, and your breaths per minute. Knitting had always been soothing to me and, maybe, just maybe, it would offer me the same shelter that smoking had.
