"Don't question why she needs to be so free...She'll tell you it's the only way to be." - The Rolling Stones, "Ruby Tuesday"
That sums up my relationship with knitting more than anything else. It's not because I love it, or because I like it, or because I have vast amounts of disposable income. It's not because I get bored on the bus or need warm sweaters or need something to do with my hands while I watch TV.
It's because I can't see myself not doing it. Not because I can't see myself doing anything else, because I read and write and sew and bind books and decoupage and am probably only a few years away from sending away for taxidermy school by mail. But knitting is part of my life, it's what I do.
