I Don't Have the Words

All I can say is THANK YOU!! Thank you for all the wonderful, caring comments and notes that have been sent my way. I can't tell you how much they have touched me. I have been trying to reply but if I haven't been able to find your email or your blog (Blogger is NO help whatsoever), please forgive me and know that I really appreciate your thoughts and hugs.

I have been knitting along on Ariann which, after ripping back to the ribbing in a decision to make her longer a la Cara's, is turning out to be the perfect knit. The pattern is so easy to memorize and if my thoughts wander, as they are apt to do, I can quickly find a mistake and fix it. And after seeing the beautiful new semi-solid rovings on Teyani's site, I decided I needed to spin up what was on my wheel so that I could, maybe, buy some of those beautiful colors. Teyani had written this in a recent email "I hope that spinning is helping to ease your heart." I had forgotten how calming it is to spin and the past few evenings have been spent with my wheel and some of Teyani's Sock Hop roving. It has been a very comforting time.

And last night I even enjoyed making dinner thanks to Carole and this recipe she posted the other day. I used ground turkey instead of the chicken and it was yummy. Thanks, Carole!

Knitting and spinning do get us through the best and worst of times and so do good friends. It's good to hear your finding peace.

Would you believe that I will be in Bristol this Sunday?! If possible, let's try to meet up soon at the tea shop in Portsmouth. Would that work for you?

I am glad that the spinning is a balm to your heavy heart. May it grow lighter with every turn of the wheel.
