Creative Knitting - - EDITOR'S NOTE -

When I set out to write an editorial let­ter for each is­sue of Cre­ative Knit­ting, the first thing I do is search for quotes and phrases that sing to my soul. Some­times, while I’m search­ing, one will ap­pear that leaps di­rectly into my heart, and that’s the one I know I must use as my in­spi­ra­tion. In­stead of search­ing for who we are or what art it is that we are sup­posed to put out into the world, we can sim­ply abide and be con­tent with where we are. The song that sings to our hearts is wait­ing to be sung, just like hap­pi­ness isn’t some­thing you seek. It’s been there all along wait­ing for you to em­brace it. Each day we have the chance to pick up our nee­dles and let what flows be­come an ex­pres­sion of our most cre­ative selves, and let this pas­sion be the spark that sets us on fire. No need to strug­gle or worry if we think we’re work­ing a stitch wrong, or if a hole sud­denly ap­pears where there shouldn’t be one. Let it be. Cel­e­brate the im­per­fec­tion of the cre­ation and al­low those beau­ti­ful stitches to leap into your heart!

“Life isn’t about find­ing your­self. Life is about cre­at­ing your­self. ” —Ge­orge Bernard Shaw

No shawl pin? No prob­lem! The clever clo­sure for the shawl on page 26 doesn't need one! Get ready to learn to read charts with Melissa Leap­man on page 30—and your home­work is this gor­geous stole.

Lay­er­ing is the way to go for the ever-chang­ing au­tumn weather. The easy­go­ing twin­set on page 43 gives you all the op­tions.
