|Daddy and Me|
My knitterly friends Erin & Julie suggested I join in the Fat Squirrel Speaks Gratitude KAL on Ravelry. A KAL to remind us of what we are grateful for while we make something for ourselves. I can honestly say I drew a blank when trying to decide what I'm grateful for - I know i have much to be grateful for: I have a well paying job, my dad despite everything is alive, I have amazing friends and a loving boyfriend. I am very grateful for Nate who lets me fall apart and just holds me telling me he loves me and it will be OK. But sometimes I wonder if it really will ever be OK again.
While I try to remember the silver linings, I am going to be knitting myself a pair of fingerless gloves. I've decided on the Vancouver Fog pattern (found here on Ravelry) in some scrumptious Mad Tosh vintage (Earl Grey color way) - I went and did some deep stash diving to find this special yarn I've been saving for a rainy day. I literally just Cast On....so we shall see.
