The poem Wild Geese by Mary Oliver speaks to how I feel about my work as a knitter and teacher, and how I want to exist in the magnificent world. There’s a copy on our refrigerator that I reread now and again.
While thinking about this concept I began swatching. Sometimes swatches are a knitter’s version of a note to be written and forgotten, but sometimes an idea takes flight.
The Wild Geese Hiking Vest came from that swatch. It incorporates a motif of geese in flight above a beautiful geometric pattern.
