I’ve recently discovered that a family member near and dear to my heart is not doing well at all. The news isn’t good. So I figured maybe something handmade would make her smile or at least give her some comfort. And knitting always gives me comfort. I knit when I am stressed, upset, and it is therapeutic. Of course I knit when I am happy as well. Knitting makes things better, never worse, and is a welcome distraction.
I pored over all the yarns at my LYS to try to find that perfect yarn for the recipient. I’ve never been so indecisive in a yarn store before! But I ended up purchasing some Ella Rae Lace Merino, which is soft, squishy, and the colorway is perfect.
It’s becoming a triangle shawl, nothing too fussy, I’m just knitting along with no pattern again.
Ever find knitting therapeutic?
