Kate Jacobs

  • Choosing your wool is dizzying with potential. The waves of colors and textures tempt with visions of a sweater or cap (and all the accompanying compliments you hope to receive) but don't reveal the hard work required to get there.

  • The knit stitch is a series of flat, vertical loops that produces a knitted fabric face and the purl stitch is its reverse. One side is smooth, the other bumpy. Knit is what you show the world, purl is the soft, nubbly underside you keep close to the skin.

  • There's the life we dream, the life we deserve, and the life we get. I'll take what I got over what I deserve any day.

Kate Jacobs, U.S. singer-songwriter, writer

(1959)
