This was a good day to be knitting with friends as it’s the anniversary of my dad’s suicide. It’s always a hard day for me, so I took a knitting project that required a fair amount of concentration to keep my mind occupied.
I’m knitting an infinity cowl with my own handspun; I love the way the colors are turning out, and it really helped to see the colors moving through my fingers onto the cowl. Somehow, creating something pretty from fiber that I’d spun helped me to remember the good memories I have of my dad. I miss him so much.
Work can be a blessed solace. Good for you for making something beautiful on a hard day.
