Tentación Thursday – The Healing Stitch
Submitted by admin on August 13, 2009 - 1:00 pm
On June 11, 2009, an unfamiliar La Buena Life member added a blog post to my site:
“I’m learning to knit. I took a class last week and made a scarf and now I’m making two more scarves. It’s really fun. Knitting looks so good. The weave is so nice and tight, it’s really satisfying. When my mom died she left behind a lot of yarn and knitting needles and I couldn’t stand to give them away. I decided that I would learn to knit and use her yarn to make scarves for everyone in the family which is exactly what I’m doing. I’ve kind of mastered this basic stitch and am really eager to learn more stitches. I want to make hats and socks and sweaters. For now I have to stick to scarves because that’s the only stitch I know”.
I was absolutely intrigued by CJ’s story and honesty. CJ recently purchased the domain knititation.com. She has not yet launched it but hopes to use the site to help others use knitting to work through their grief. To kick off her efforts, I’m giving away a knitting kit today for those of you who’d like to get a head start. The color are (from left to right) very berry, cool mint, passion fruit and rainbow sherbet. To enter to win, comment below and let me know which color you’d like.
CJ is a member on La Buena Life so feel free to contact her. Also, she will be featured tomorrow on my Fabuloso Friday blog… stay tuned to watch the exclusive interview!
