I’m Julie (Brindelaine on Ravelry), a French 30-something living and knitting in Switzerland.
I am desperately trying to write a PhD in New Testament while knitting to feel productive.
English is not my first language, so any lexical, syntactical or grammatical mistake that makes its way into these pages is probably my own fault ; I beg for your understanding !
About The Header Picture
It is Eric Gill’s woodcutting Madonna and Child with Angel, 1916.
I am aware of Gill’s controversial (to say the least) personality. I am by no means supporting what Gill did or claimed to have done.
I simply chose this picture because I find it stunningly beautiful. It helps me turn toward God. To me, this is simply proof to the fact that good works of art take on a life of their own which surpasses by far the materiality of their author’s existence.
