knitting can be a source of comfort. the simple act of holding wool and needles in my hands
is recipe for joyful minutes, sometimes even hours, in a day. since losing my mother last week, i've found that the thing i can manage, the thing that soothes my broken heart, is still knitting.
sadie, my granddaughter, chose this yarn, for her sweater. she was so pleased with it she told me she planned to wear it for her school photos. and she also wanted to wear it to the 'home' she and her brother built on the beach. after all, even though there is an outdoor kitchen and garden, inside the bamboo hut is a seaweed chandelier, and dressing nice is always welcome. (i love how much my daughter and granddaughter are looking alike in these photos).
