I've been keeping this one to myself to savor for a couple of months. Actually, I'm so touched that when I think of the kindness of knitters, it still brings a tear to my eye.
A couple of months ago I got a surprise package in the mail. It included some do-dads from different places and an afghan. A very special knitted afghan.
It seems that after the loss of our son, my wonderful friends got together an knitted us a special blanket. This wasn't just one knitting group. It included girls from SNBWB, South Suburbs SnB, and other knitting friends who now live in Ohio, France, and Japan.It's so special that hugs are built in.
I'm just speechless everytime I see it. The outpouring of from people the last few months has been incredible. Knowing the amount of time and love these ladies put into a gift like this is so comforting. Special thanks to Knifty Red, AJS, Knitterary, French Kitten, Luciousluka, Llunar Llama, and Gurski who all knit parts of the afghan. Thanks. Just. Thanks.
