All friendships are knit together metaphorically, but knitting buddies are truly joined by a common interest in yarn – pieces of string which bind our lives together. Threads, a comfortable-fitting pullover, was inspired by a comfortable-fitting friendship – you know the kind – where you can chat for hours about anything or nothing, deep or shallow, intricate lace or stockinette, while your busy needles hum a steady, comfortable rhythm in the background.
