05:56 pm - The Magic of Making

What a wonderful surprise to see these fantastic kylecassidy photos of neil-gaiman for Joan of Dark’s new book Geek Knits in which he's wearing her Sherlock inspired scarf & deerstalker (and also stealthily wearing his black cashmere Kambriel overcoat)!

There’s something intrinsically magical about handmade things. Making things by hand can become a kind of meditation, a gentle spell-weaving as thoughts, energies, wishes are stitched into fabric, knit in with yarn. Creations move on to their intended recipients, but a connection remains and years can pass where even the tiniest appearance of a detail or shadowy silhouette is enough to recognize a piece from afar… It’s like an amaranthine pleasure which never fades, seeing something made with care, living its life & being enjoyed. In a world flooded with the mass-produced, it’s important to keep this magic/craft of handmaking treasures, of imbuing pieces with love, care, and perhaps some enchantment, alive & well.
