I've been thinking about this ever since it arrived, and I'm still not
sure. I learned to knit all our sweaters, etc. when I was 13 and I
still knit, but while watching my hands, I noticed my right index
finger is predominant in the stitch forming movement as though
pointing. It seems to me the Creator's finger as well as that of Adam
is more retro - that is, bent backward more and it seems so powerful -
certainly far more so than in knitting. On the other hand, I think of
the Creator weaving life into Adam's form, as we "weave" string or
yarn into fabric to form an object. I'm glad you mentioned this,
George. It seems to me always wise to look closely at everything, and
you gave me something new to ponder. Thanks!
