Tangled In Yarn & Covered In Glitter

Sunday, May 30, 2004


I was looking at the patterns on knitty.com for something to put off the blanket and shawl with.

I started crying.

I'm never going to be able to knit my dad something. My grandma - the one who taught me how to knit - made him a fun hat, or a sweater, or SOMETHING every year for his birthday and Christmas.

But I asked her to teach me too late.

I'd love to make my dad a lopsided stocking cap, or a badly-blocked sweater. Because I know that he'd love whatever it was to death, simply because I made them.

But it's too late.

July will be two years since he died.

I'm gonna go work on that baby blanket and not think about it.
