Portrait of the Knitter as a Middle-Aged Woman

My good friend Viki took this photo of me not long ago at a church gathering, where we sat outdoors on a glorious spring afternoon enjoying food and fellowship together. After the meal I got out my knitting, of course, and I have only to look at the picture to feel a wave of peace & contentment spreading over me, as it did on that day. I share it with Viki's gracious permission.

P.S. Note the dpn's in my hand. Not socks, though... I was working on an elegant pair of beaded cashmere gloves, about which there will be more to say on a later occasion in what I hope will be the not-too-distant future.
