The Beauty of Handicraft 手工之美






Anja got a parcel today. Her aunt in Beijing has knitted a white color wool sweater and a pair of white color wool pants for her. The knitting patten is as simple and it can be, however, I fall in love with it.

Handicrafts always touch my heart. It feels me with love, emotions,time, patience and warmth, but not the other way around. I wrote before that "when I am making a dress and sitting under the sun, the stitching feels like practicing to me", and this is probably the road I am predestined to travel along. Happy to find that this is my way.
