At my non-knitting workplace, we have a fabulous intern. She’s smart, motivated, and (best of all) she has no concept of what is possible and what is impossible, which means she gets a heck of a lot of big things done.
In any case, I found myself giving her ridiculous career advice last week.
“The important thing to remember is… always wear comfortable shoes.”
There was context. It makes sense to say it explicitly in a world that often disproportionately values how things look. But it was ridiculous, too. So I thought I would seize the momentum of feeling like a mom and introduce you to my own mother.
She knew the basics of knitting long before I was born, but has really started to find her feet in the last few years. She is also an adventurous knitter, and has the blessing of beginner’s mind. She’ll be joining us every few weeks, and I hope you enjoy her words as much as I do!
