Our journey begins one fine spring day, when a naive and impressionable girl was given some sticks and string. Loops and knots and some impossibly dreadful projects were born, but our heroine persevered and eventually turned to the internet to develop those post-apocalyptic life skills.
A couple of decades and a lot of swear words later, that girl has more yarn than is healthy. Beyond a simple outlet for creative expression, knitting has seen Miss Anthropy through trials and tribulations, underemployment, relationship ups and downs, and yes, even the good times.
So with that in mind, dear reader, we leave you with this aphorism that was just made up:
Sticks and stones may break our bones, but sticks and string uplift us.
