the knitting circle

They sit in circles

Hooks and needles at the ready

Yarn is twisting round the table legs

Before it’s knitted into scarves

And blankets that are kept for years

Keepsakes loved by generations

With those conversations had

Woven in with warmth and care.

    There is something about a crafting circle like that, Rachel. There’s so much of the person woven into the knitting, or crocheting, or whatever. And the social bonding people can get can be really powerful.
