Community is beautiful. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.
We began in January at the Byron Library. Our three piles of colourful patterns of knitted squares have grown to about 4 feet. Knit stitch, seed stitch, moss stitch, basket weave, colour blocking–all so beautiful. We began with an idea to start some knitted squares and leave them in a basket for our patrons to add rows whenever they visited the Library and felt inspired. The Library is a cozy place to knit in the winter months, and our needles, squares, and yarn have been journeying with patrons into corners of the library–by the fireplace, in the leather chairs, in the children’s area while their children play with trains. When the baskets are empty, it means knitting is happening all around us.
