You may not be hearing from me for a couple of days. A dear friend has suffered a terrible tragedy, the kind that calls for many hours spent sleeping on hospital floors, the freezing of casseroles, and the wringing of hands. I wish I could say I have been able to knit through this- not only for selfish reasons, but because I really do believe that the sight of a person knitting in the ICU would communicate something peaceful, something mending. But that is not the role that falls to me right now.
I miss you all- your words, your photos. I'll be back soon. Meanwhile, I'm pleased to report that I'll be editing the next edition of Yarnival! (I believe the exclamation point is integral.) Submit your funniest, your proudest, your most thoughtful, your whackiest, your most tangled and your smoothest knitting blog posts by way of this form. I, for one, can't wait.
