"There is a certain majesty in simplicity which is far above all the quaintness of wit." ~ Alexander Pope
"It is some kind of miracle that all knitting is constructed of only two stiches: knit and purl. Sure, you throw in some yarn overs, and sometimes you knit the stiches out of order, but when it really comes down to it, knitting is simplicity. The most incredible gossamer lace shawl.... the trickiest aran.... a humble sock... each just made with knit and purl."
