I just had this on my heart and I had to share this story with you. On June 26, 2007 my loving father passed away, leaving me heartbroken. He was such a wonderful man and knew many people, and it touched me to know he touched so many lives. There were over 500 people that came to visitation to pay their final respects to him. In my process of grieving this loss, I needed something to help me through, and I asked my mother to teach me how to knit. It surprised me how well I caught on. She told me that I am a fast learner, and I have done great just for my first month of knitting. I have joined her "Girls Love Yarn" knitting and crochet club, we meet once a week. When I get my dad on my mind, I sit down pick up my needles and start knitting away and reminisce about my memories of him. Knitting has helped me so much, even though I am still mourning his loss. Thanks for letting me share my story.
In memory of my loving father.
