It only took thousands of tiny stitches
to make Dad's socks.
He received them in February.
He said they fit and seemed quite pleased with them.
I was very happy.
I thought about him wearing these socks
every time I sat down to knit,
and sometimes stitch by stitch.
I loved making them for him even though
I had rip back my work
That's something I like about knitting -
the good thoughts I have for the person
I am knitting for.
Too bad the thoughts can't be
sent along as well with the knitting,
but I guess the
thousands of tiny stitches
are proof enough
that they were there.
