Addicted to Knitting

Archive for October 28th, 2007

I have had a week I never want to relive. With all the stuff going on at church, school and family, that is enough to make me a wee bit stressed.

My stress was joined by sorrow. My dear friend at church lost her son on Monday. He was just 17 and what a charmer he was. Blond hair and blue eyes that twinkled and a smile that could melt the hardest of hearts. He tried to serve Jesus but the enemy never left him alone. Now he is at his real home with Jesus. The ones left behind are the ones who question and mourn. You see he died because of drugs. Such a waste of a good life. The memorial was yesterday and it was hard to sit through. I have never seen grief the way I saw it yesterday. My friend and her daughters were holding each other and almost wailing.I think I understand the tearing of the clothes that the Jewish people did in the Bible. It would have felt good to tear something and scream at the top of my lungs.

Meanwhile I have lost my knitting. I tried to make Jasbo some mittens and can’t seem to even do that. My k1p1 ribbing is uneven and I don’t care. I don’t have the desire to knit. This is very strange. I have much I need to be getting done but alas, I am going nowhere.
