I’m writing from the heart today, so I’m going to do it in English.
One of the most amazing discoveries for me after becoming a knitter was not lace or cables, not even cashmere or merino. It was the incredible people in the knitting community and the way they care for and care about other knitters. That a craft can bring us all together and give rise to such love and goodness has been the very best thing about learning to knit.
Today that aspect of our craft was brought home to me in the shape of a small package from across the Atlantic. Just 20x30cm, but so full of love it actually made me cry.
Thank you so so so much to the lovely people at Mobile Yarn in Mobile, Alabama for making these “Hearts for Barcelona”. I will take them this weekend to the Ramblas and hang them where people can feel uplifted as they see them.
I AM going to save one to hang in our shop, to look at when when things occassionally feel a little bleak.
Love each other, love yourselves.
