History of Knitting Story...

Okay, you know that I've knitted for years. And you know that the "man from my past" has been in and out of my life for years.

Well, years ago, I knitted him a scarf. I was really still a beginner at knitting, tho' I started knitting in my teens. I never fully grasped certain important things like holding tension in the yarn until this recent foray into my addiction. So you can imagine the pathetic nature of "the scarf."

Well, last week, elann sent out their newsletter and I spied a wondrous wool in a garnet color, just perfect for the "man from my past." I immediately copied the photo and enclosed it in an email, asking if he liked it enough that I could order it to make him a scarf.

What do you know? The reply was touching. He has one scarf to his name (doesn't like them, nothing against me, of course!) - the scarf I knitted all those years ago! He's kept it. Like I've kept all those scraps of paper...

Hmmm. I think this one's a keeper...

I am touched, and agree that he just might be a keeper! More men should embrace a little sentimentality, sure works with us women :)

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
