Maker’s Hands

28 Mar

Every time I scrunch up my nose in disappointment the the state of my hands, I have to remind myself that I have the hands of a MAKER.  They are not immaculate, well-manicured or anything of the sort.  They have chipped nail polish, rough spots, callouses, and are full of scrapes and cuts.  My hands are well-used tools of my trade.

My hands are used to make beauty.  My hands are beautiful because they are skilled.

My knuckle tattoos: knit & purl.

Several years ago I decided to label them as maker hands.  My knuckles read “knit” & “purl.”  These are the two fundamental stitches in knitting.  I love knitting.  I love making.  I love my hands.

(My knuckle tattoos were done by Timm McKenny.  He tattoos at Addictive Tattoo in Sioux City, IA.)
