Then scissors will cut the garment in half, 2 connected pieces, dozens of hours split to reveal something to be worn.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
A final flourish will be me stringing hundreds of tiny, iridescent beads through metal & wool.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I’ll adorn myself with a woven sun-catcher, take rays of sunlight with, and light up all the dark places.⁣

What will you become?⁣⁣

A blanket to swath around your body, one to slip your arms inside?⁣⁣

Holding the light, between knit and purl stitches.⁣⁣

A halo that glimmers with hope that you’ll reach for it each and every time.⁣

Worn with the seasons, faded and true. ⁣⁣

Came for the knitting.⁣⁣⁣
Stayed for the people.⁣⁣⁣

Sharing stories, making and mending this blanket, simultaneously darning holes, strengthening our fabric.⁣⁣⁣

The stereo is on full blast now, the buttons have fallen off. Maximum volume. ⁣⁣

The notes float around the room. The ground vibrates, some hands to ears, all heads tilted.⁣⁣⁣

As I watch these poppies open up & bloom, my heart swells will with drops of gratitude. ⁣
⁣
I feel like those raised, wet patches on a letter, after it’s been read and cried on. Ink dripping, painting their words with a kaleidoscope of colours.⁣
⁣
I stayed in bed an extra 10 minutes this blush morning, and just watched the rainbows dance across the wall. ⁣
⁣
We are those rainbows.⁣

Pondering where we go from here?⁣
Shoulders down, eyebrows drop, knitting needles get picked up.⁣
⁣
My back is smooth, like an ornate stepping stone. A slick brownstone, each vertebrae contributing to the closeness, a necessary rock.⁣
⁣
Individually we sink from the pressure of the hopscotch being danced on them. I wouldn’t mind if you picked one up, skipped me across the water, ripples vibrating, liquefying the land, then paddle your way over. No need to use our backs. Pardon our backs.⁣
⁣
Do you treasure pebbles? Put them in your pocket, rub them often? Smooth away their pain? You see us as sinking into the mud, but thrive, we are still here, waiting, being. Living.⁣
⁣
Day 19. We are still here.⁣ #diversknitty

Gently picking and plucking, soaking and savouring, waiting and watching sweet yarn turn from bare, to charmingly there.⁣
