This is not a selfie.
Knitting, as magnificently shown by AGNES, above, can be done by a robot, but people still love to knit, and wear hand knit things. Even the Industrial Revolution with all its factories and machines, did not replace hand knitting. The time spent with the yarn, slowly working along the needles, moving between the knitters fingers; the thoughts and plans of what will be made, who it will be for, and even the hours spent choosing the pattern and colour of the yarn all impart something to both the knitted item, and the knitter herself(himself). Some little bit of the crafter's intentions are entwined with the yarn, stitch by stitch, to be felt in some way by the wearer. Knit with love. Can AGNES do that?
What are your thoughts on this?
