a good yarn: grief relief

When words don't help
Knit and purl the agony out
Your hands will learn how

Inspired by Ann Hood's book "The Knitting Circle" (one of the saddest books I have ever read)

    I used to be an avid knitter myself and that's absolutely true. Twist and turn and cut off agony's neck. Truly a well-deserved first placement in the contest. Well done, Susan. :)
