Progess {A Haiku}...

Knitting row by row,
Working steadily with patience,
Creating beauty.


I'm halfway done with my scarf! I try to knit at least a couple rows each day. Some days that's all I can fit in. Some days, I get to knit for pockets of time throughout the day and really make some headway. It's been a good lesson in the value of chipping away at big projects. And oh how I love the steady rhythm of the motions and the soft smooth feel of those beautiful bamboo needles!



I was so inspired to write a haiku after reading Jill's yesterday. I love the simple abundance of haikus. I have decided to join {yet another} Flickr group called 52 Haikus where I'll post a picture and corresponding original haiku every week for a year. I love having all these photographic challenges; they really help me to grow and stay creatively motivated. I'm excited to add the element of writing into the mix! And perhaps my next post will have to be a summary of all my current photography challenges and projects!

I can't wait to see the finished scarf..You have such patience..I think it's neat that you want to write a haiku. I love words with images, it completes the art.

hope everyone is doing well...

That is such beautiful yarn. I use bamboo needles as well and after just one go with them, could not go back to the metal ones.

Haiku's really are beautiful. They remind you of how wonderful the simple things in life can really be.

i remember writing haiku's in elementary school, but totally forgot the formula. google it! ;) the scarf is coming along and i know what you mean about knitting only a row or two a day... that's about as much as i get done too. i'd love to teach you that hat pattern... it's easier than you think, trust me :)

Your haiku and scarf are both beautiful. I keep saying I need to learn how to knit...especially after seeing others create beauties like you have.
