A weekly feature on the blog, NOT Knit by Nat highlights great patterns by budding designers on Ravelry
Working on a trade desk, there are no less than 3 separate news stations on at any given time. It's hard to be surrounded by the sad news of Boston all day long with acts of senseless violence on a seemingly unending loop, but I try to remind myself of the unbelievable amount of good people out there and the strength of the human spirit. After seeing the explosions now countless times, I focus on the people instantly running right into the cloud of smoke trying to help. A formidable display of bravery and brotherly love.
It seems fickle to be writing a knitting post in light of this grave situation unfolding in front of me, but Kristen's post this week struck a chord with me. For us needle crafters, knitting and crocheting brings us some calm and peace. Jenny's pattern is especially fitting. Crocheting a pristine Sunday Best Dress might just be what the doctor ordered.
