the ebb and the flow

the stitch and the rip.

Remember how I used her as a bookmark about 2 weeks ago?

Stitches dropped off.
Botched rescue attempt.
Yesterday I was reading Wendy's tale of ripping woe.

And today here I am back where I was 2 weeks ago.
On row 16.

Which makes knitting Mortie feel like Mona Hatoum's
piece " + and - "

Which is a kinetic scuplture where a single turning blade simultaneously rakes grooves into the sand...
then smoothes them over.
Just like they were never there.

Then grooves again....

Augh. Find the zen. The ripping is the zen.

I actually want to watch that sculpture forever.

Thank you for reminding me of that Mona Hatoum piece - I love it.
Now I need to go home and dig up my book on her work....
