Things are adding up!
Patti's package arrived this morning (with Vanna still chatting away in there), and I collected over 100 feet from Zabeth Weiner, a knitwear deisgner who, as it turns out, attends the same Zen Center as I and generously knit up many, many skeins. She also invited some of her knitting students to knit too and five of them took up the challenge. The text you see says "slow labor, good results." One of the students had a friend who had a baby after a three-day labor while she was working on her knitting and it inspired her quotation.
Here is Lucy during our photo shoot yesterday. She is all wrapped up in the family business.
