Knitting For Others...

My knitting group has really been stretched to the max the past 3 months - and at least a few of us are beginning to wonder if there's a little black cloud following us around...

Twice one member has been burned out by separate house/apartment fires. And two other members have had immediate family injured in fires. (Come to think of it, if the black clouds have rain in them, I wish they'd open up and pour down to squelch the flames.) This is getting a bit scary.

We've made one blanket (which got smoked up, but was saved in the second house fire) and are knitting squares for two others. I showed you the 4 hearts square last week for one of them. This is the beginning of a log cabin square (that will be 7 inches, but is currently only 4) for one we're making for the most recent member to be in need.
I hope no one takes this the wrong way: I am tired of knitting blanket squares for fire victims.

And by that I mean, I'm tired of the fires. I'll knit squares for the blankets for as long as there is a need, and I won't think twice about it.

But I'd really like the need to stop. (Oh...and no, the fires are totally unrelated, and not malicious in any way - just plain accidental things. But the damage, the pain, and the sorrow are taking a heavy toll here in our community.)

How horrible! I'm sorry. I hope the black cloud turns to sunny sky!

Oh how terrible! {{{hugs}}} I hope the need abates sooner then later.

Oh, boy. That's just horrible, and stressful for everyone. I'll hope with you that there's no more need!

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.
