purity, headgear, & a bit o’craft (he-he!)

had forgotten about this 100% pure un-dyed wool hat crocheted last winter

Pure. v. (L. purus. …to separate, free, clear…)

  1. Separate from all heterogeneous or extraneous matter…

  2. Free from moral defilement…

  3. Genuine, real, true, unadulterated…

American Dictionary of the English Language, Noah Webster.

Is there such a thing as pure sewing? Knitting? Crocheting? Any craft?

Thought-provoking points to ponder, as many of us busily continue to sew, knit, crochet, and do other crafts.

Let’s look up craft . . .

Craft. n. (Sax. craft, art, cunning, power, force. . . The primary sense is, to strain or stretch. Hence, strength, skill, a crying out…)

  1. Art, ability, dexterity, skill.

  2. Cunning, art, or skill, in a bad sense…

  3. Art… dexterity in a particular manual occupation; hence, the occupation or employment itself . . .

Hm. There are positive and negative connotations here, and a broiling weekend afternoon ain’t the time for heated debate.

Particularly as this is merely rhetorical musing with a motive of submission to not one, but two three photo challenges. (he-he!)

Possibly not the purist of motives.  😉   So let’s leave it at that, shall we?

Meanwhile, I might not be the only one with a huge pile of things to mend, sew, finish off, so-o-o .  .  .  .

Get out the ice cream (or hot toddies if you’re lucky enough to be freezing), and have a delightful weekend, everyone!
