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]

The knitting retreat at New Harmony, Indiana is my first teaching opportunity this fall. My topic is lace knitting and I’ve devised this six-inch piece for our basic project. It is only 28 rounds and the pattern includes a full size blocking diagram. The pattern is both charted and written out in abbreviations so it will offer the opportunity for the knitters to practice a variety of skills.

If anything makes my light shine from within, it is these annual trips to New Harmony. It is still two months away and I’m already excited.
