Time for tea & knitting

The strawberry tea cosy is for my daughter, Melissa. I just finished it tonight :) I made up this pattern myself by l know that there are knitting instructions you can download HERE.

Knitting for me is so similar to my time spent in the garden or out walking- it gives me a place of peace- a time to think and meditate and when needed a time to resurface.

When l knit l enter a state of calm repose

l think of my mother and grandmothers

their hands in mine now

I think of how quickly time passes

like the wool as it slips through my fingers

I knit to remember

to celebrate

I think of the person who l am knitting for

and how they have shaped my life

like stitches in time -

Dear Sarah ~~ I love the tea cosy you made for Melissa and I bet your new curtains look great. I loved hearing about you and Olwyn making soup. I does get tiring minding
little ones, and Grandy is nice. I like the quote about grandmothers
Thanks for your visit and your offer of sending me some energy if you had some to spare. Thanks for thinking of me my friend. I hope to shake it off and get going again. Take care, Love, Merle.
