It’s a running joke that although I’m one half of a knitting company, I tell people I have “two left hands”. My knitting skills are elementary at best, but you should watch Eli in action. It’s oddly hypnotic. She can’t tell you how exactly how long it takes her to complete a project, except in Netflix episode lengths. That’s her go to measuring metric. “Those took an entire season of Sherlock.” That was a legitimate quote from her, verbatim.

And she can knit anywhere, on any mode of transportation (I have yet to see her knit on a motorbike but I’m sure she could), beach-side, coffee shops, outside on the curb in front of a hardware store, even in the middle of the street.

With love,
