Soft



What you knitting? They always ask her this as she click-clacks away on the buses, restaurants, in museums. She’ll smile then, say it would take too long to explain. The truth is she can’t miss a minute. There’s a whole hard cold world out there she needs to cover up.

Thanks both. I still have no idea what those knitted covers were doing!

Started with scarves and gloves and hats. Katherine, knitting the whole world warm. Then jumpers. Socks. Cosies for teapots, blankets for gran. And covers for toilet rolls and booties for babies. Now she knits sleeves for trees, and fenceposts in her garden, and nests for birds to lay eggs in.
