Where I Stand Sunday

It began as a way to dispel grief, a place to go where nothing but peaceful repetition and serenity is allowed to dwell. The knitting community reaches all around the globe, bound in a common language and affection for an ancient fiber art. It has earned a permanent place on the roster, a reliable friend with an outstretched hand whenever one is needed.

Where I Stand is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places I spend my life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. The ground we tread on has its own stories to tell. (The project is now in Year Three. Year Three will feature artwork inspired by that week's Where I Stand photo as well as the photo that inspired it. Year One and Year Two can be found here.)

Love that photo! The artwork is very cool, did your mom freak when she saw you knitting a baby sock?
