Fingers Flying Through YArn
Created By: Lynn Campbell

I knitted Christmas stockings from kits and a couple of sweaters when I was in college. When I got married the leftover yarn was put away or given away and I did not give knitting another thought for almost 40 years.

My niece, for whom I had knitted a Christmas stocking in the early 60's, had twin daughters and wanted someone to make each of them a stocking. It wasn't until several months later when my husband was stricken by a series of serious strokes and ultimately brain surgery and was hospitalized many times for many days that I thought "I need to do something to keep me busy while sitting with him in the hospital. I think I will try to knit the girls each a stocking." I discovered there were no Stocking kits to be found so I dug out my old patterns, bought yarns in all of the necessary colors and knitted away.

From there I began easy projects and everyone got a knitted scarf. While my husband was in speech therapy twice a week for 18 months, knitting became my therapy. This was almost four years ago. Since then I have knitted baby blankets for Katrina kids on the Gulf Coast where I once lived. I have made preemie burial gowns and preemie hats for a hospital,fun hats for women going through chemotherapy, 12 baby blankets for newborn grandchildren of friends and am presently working on an adult afghan. Almost everything that I have knitted has been given as a gift but I realize that the greatest gift has been given to me by knitting. I have met many wonderful people, I have seen the joy it brings to the recipients, and knitting was my source of comfort during a very difficult time. There was no wringing of hands only fingers flying through yarn!
