Knitting Circles


Knitting circles are therapeutic. Ann Hood, author of “The Knitting Circle,” discovered this. Reluctantly she joined a knitting circle at her mother’s insistence after losing her five-year-old daughter to meningitis and struggling to recover from this insurmountable loss. She learned to knit and found that, “amid the focused clicking of needles, (there is) a temporary quietness of mind. And in the company of the other knitters, a camaraderie and gradual sense of safety.”

    thought you had perhaps died. I stopped checking for your posts a long time ago. Glad you are not dead.
