Button lies heavy.
It’s hard, black surface
Standing still and
Finding small comfort
Among the shiny, wrinkled ribbons
Of deep red.

Button reaches –
Touching the sister ribbon
Of faded yellow-green
Wanting what the ribbons have.

Ribbons so entangled.
Enmeshed in the softness
That cloud-like yarn offers
In gratitude.

They hardly notice
Button’s earnest effort;
Feeling only the weight.
Glass button, a sharp contrast.

Button, oh ill shaped button
Not a square, nor a circle
Who made you?

How is it you have landed here?

Loretta Warner, I Love Knitting
Poet and writer who uses all things textile – as a distraction.

Knitting, even with great tools, does take time. I like to knit in the quiet, no radio, and no distractions. To make the piece, means doing it!

Here are some things I’ve been working on which are from my Josephine Collection. Josephine’s coat of many colors – you know “Joseph” was really a woman!

I’ve promised in 2013, to be a regular from now on. You will begin to see beautiful pieces. I am also a teacher who gives free advice and loves to be called “an advisor”. I believe there is “room at the top of the mountain.”Image
