Once you look at it that way, as a sincere sort of loyalty, there is no denying that if you are going to knit everywhere, all the time, not every project is going to be appropriate for every situation. This means that I, or other knitters who have embraced this as a lifestyle, require a rather large assortment of different projects available to us in order to meet this goal. It’s all about balance and planning. Nobody can knit lace in the dark at the movies. (Sorry. ) I need a simple knit. No shaping, no yarn overs, no stitch or row counting; it needs to be a project that just has plain knitting with nothing happening.

It’s the spirit of the thing that matters. She’s out. Therefore, the two virtuous contestants remaining in the match are Ian and me. In past years I have been held back from the full glory of my skills by the presence of small children, since they get frostbite sooner than adults and can’t be dragged into the contest with me, but now they are young women, and the fact that they carry McPhee DNA could not be more apparent. The girls discussed it the other night, and in addition to the financial and environmental rewards reaped by waiting, they also have embraced the glory of kicking their Uncle Ian’s arse on this, and I think that even if I wanted to turn on the heat now, I would be outvoted.

The way she knits sums her up. Cass is changeable without being flighty, adaptable without being reckless; she can devise a new approach in a heartbeat if she has to, and she does it all without losing track of her central self. Cass changes her breakfast cereal all the time, and she doesn’t even consider it a risk.
