Also, your sweater is great.

The other day I read a post shared by The Wing that I wanted you to see.

I’m sharing this because I know it’s hard out there sometimes. You have a lot on your mind, a lot on your plate, and a lot on your needles. And sometimes it feels like you’re doing everything you can do, and it’s still not enough. 

It’s easy to forget how far a tiny morsel of kindness can go. It’s a little sprinkle of hope that reminds us that we’re okay. We’re not alone. We’ve got this. 

Better still, it’s a reminder that we’re in this together.

If you’re having one of those days (or weeks, or months), I want to remind you that knitting is for both the good times and the bad. It’s for the nights when you can’t sleep and the days when you’re waiting and waiting and waiting, and that important news still hasn’t come. It’s for celebrating and grieving and everything in between. And it’s portable, which means it’s there for the road trips and the DMV and the outdoor concerts, too. (Knitting is for everywhere, except jury duty and some international flights. Damn it.)

Anyway, listen. Whatever it is you’re tackling at the moment, you’re going to be okay. It’s hard – maybe even brioche-with-a-blindfold hard. But whatever it is, grab a cuppa, hold onto those needles and take a deep breath. You’ll get through it.

Also, your sweater is great.
