Patuanak Woman

I found this archival picture of a woman from Patuanak, the community in which I live, during an image search on Google.

She's weaving a basket.

I'm not sure what it is about her but I felt an immediate connection. Maybe it's because she's creating something useful and beautiful with her hands, just like my knitting.

Whatever the reason for the connection, I wanted to share her with you.

Happy knitting day, M

That is a really amazing picture - you are right there is something that draws you into it on a deeper level - maybe it the sisterhood connection we feel.

Great picture... handmade objects bring up my admiration, knowing that some hard work goes into them. This pictures show it clearly.
