Elizabeth Zimmermann, the amazing knitting genius I would meet if I could go back in time, once wrote, "Knit on, with confidence and hope, through all crises."
This past weekend, I was OK, and my knitting was OK, but someone very dear to me was going through a personal crisis starting Saturday night. Rock bottom crisis. The good news is that things can only get better from here. (I'm hoping and praying!)
I jumped in and did as much as I could to help, and then I knitted.
What could be more hopeful
during a crisis than baby socks? When finished, this will be a pair. The pattern is Super Quick Baby Socks
, and the yarn is leftover Banana Cabana from Cider Moon. I'm using US size 5 needles to save my wrists and fingers. These socks already have a home lined up in the near future.
Readers, make sure your friends know they can call on you day or night if they are in need, whether the favor is big or small. Make sure they know you mean it. Then, make sure you're ready to go to their aid when they call. Remind your friends that everyone needs help sometimes, and it's OK to ask for help.
