Sure, in just a few days I can proudly show off my friend to everyone. Some will marvel at it, and others will not. From this point forward my friend will belong to the world. But one thing it will never be again is just my friend
Yes as I come to the end I know that the intimacy is about to end. No longer will my friend be there to soothe my aching mind by giving so freely of its stitches. It would no longer calm me with the rhythmical motion of our friendship. No. very soon I will have lost this friend to the world.
My mind races forward to what sorts of new friends I might find. There are many I know of waiting to meet. It's kind of like it own dating service, while that really does sound a bit "sic". And just like that I find myself losing the sadness and instead begin gaining hope. Hope of a new friend and new experience.
Who knew that knitting would prove to be so emotional.
