The Details

I have always been a fan of the phrase: It’s all in the details.

My paternal grandmother was my teacher and I didn’t know how much she taught me until a few years ago.

I remember the day she commented that I had gained more patience. Patience is something I believe I need to keep working on, because I feel I lack enough patience. Patience is required to obtain detail. Detail in a craft.

In knitting, details can be as simple as rows of even stitches. Beads added. Cables completed. Lace winding and looping in fascinating knots. Details in knitting is something I am continually working on.

I feel grandma has helped me to strive for the details in just remembering her patience in the details. Patience in the craft. And patience in life.

It’s all in the details. And I will keep looking……..
