Knitting Words

"Knit on, with confidence and hope, through all crises."
Elizabeth Zimmermann, 1910-1999

Legend says that a shepherd, on whose farm a Green Pigeon lives in the barn rafters, will have luscious green pastures in which to graze his flock, a prosperous wool crop and healthy, strong newborn lambs. The cooing of the Green Pigeon helps the young lambs stay calm should they stray from the rest of the flock. With wing beating and rafter pacing, they lead the lambs back to the security of the barn area and their mothers.

May every stitch you knit bring you a little closer
to that calm, clear space in the center of your soul.
