Knitting, especially charity knitting, is an important part of my life. (The project in the photo is going to grow up to be a newborn size hat for Rochester Methodist Hospital.) There is rarely a time when I am not knitting, and in December knitting took on a whole new meaning when my son was born still. My friend Ally sent me this cup in a care package after Freddy was born. At that point, knitting became therapy. And recently I read an article stating the knitting does, in fact, help emotional healing.
