Here's one that I thought that was particularly appropriate for now:
"There is a longstanding joke in our family about what it would take to keep me from knitting. I have knit through illness, disaster, injury, and labor.
When I was expecting my first baby, I asked my midwife when I should call her to come. "When you don't want to knit anymore," she replied.
My husband thought that would be cutting it pretty close."
This woman puts my craft into perspective, makes me feel slightly more "normal" about my yarn, almost amateurish, as though I have no right to describe it as an obsession. Which, of course, allows me room to develop, to learn, to grow – in experience, technique and stash.
But, in the mean time, I shall attempt to pick-up my needles and continue working on the hat. Knitting while in labour, now there would be a first – and I should probably start practising before it actually happens.
