You're Just a Hand Made Thing in a Machine Made World
What is it about hand work that is so necessary to the fiber artist? I often hear textile artists say they have to keep their hands busy. It's impossible for them to just sit and watch the world pass by. If they aren't creating something, they feel restless and like time's a wastin'.
Whether knitting or tatting or stitching, textile artists hunger for the feel of fiber in their hands. One friend was so adept at knitting she would stitch in line at the grocery store. Don't you long for the needle and thread while waiting at the doctors office?
Fish with inquiring minds.
So I'm wondering how and where do you keep your hands on fiber? Ever stitch at stop lights? Knit on an airplane? Inquiring minds want to know.
