I made a pot of chili for a superbowl party this weekend, the recipe having the same name as this post. I laughed out loud about the Devil being in the details, and it got me thinking. (Oh yeah, it was super awesome Chili. Thanks Robin Robertson, for another amaaaaazing chili recipe!)
Whether someone believes in the Devil or not, I think everyone can agree that the Devil represents self-indulgence, selfishness, addictions, ect. The reason I laughed at the phrase is because the details are my self-indulgence and addiction. What am I talking about? Well, knitting of course!
I’m addicted to patterns featuring intricate details; cables, lace and colorwork. I self-indulge in this type of knitting. It makes me….feel a bit selfish.
Here’s some detail knitting I’ve been doing lately (well, in the past 3 months):
I had fun with this post and I don’t really think knitting is the devil.
