People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed only if
there is a light from within.

[Elisabeth Kubler-Ross]

During my recent trip to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, I caved in and bought something to go with the yarn that I also bought—colbalt-blue, circular, glass knitting needles from ERNST finely crafted glass. Not only do these needles knit with greater ease than any needles I’ve tried, I feel like I’m using a piece of art. I’m one of those people who write better with a pretty pen and draw better with a special pencil (at least I feel like I do). Just thought I’d share that.
