“We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already.” —J.K. Rowling
Knitting makes me feel like a child at play. As the yarn glides through my fingers and fabric begins to emerge, I enjoy a moment of admiration for the stitches just created a moment before.
I can’t exactly explain it, but there’s something else at hand—something divinely inspired, with a sprinkle of magic.
When it comes to one-skein and small projects, the benefits go beyond the time– and money-saving aspects. Minimal-skein projects are the solution for that itch you wish to scratch when you want to jump into a new project on the spot and finish it quickly.
It’s a thrill to spontaneously dig into our stashes and marvel at the beautiful fibers and colors that have been lying dormant in the dark corners of our boxes and bins. Finally they have a chance to show their magnificence!
Stash busting is an uninhibited and inspiring process, akin to how a painter works with a palette and canvas—envisioning something beyond the bare, white space to transform a skein or two into a headband, a cowl or a pint-size baby sweater.
Keep making magic!
