Soothing Memories
Created By: Pat Gilardi

My mother tried time after time to teach me how to crochet and knit. I learned the basics but lost interest when my mother repeatedly ripped out my work when there was a slipped stitch. I became so frustrated and gave up.
Then my brother got cancer and I spent many days and nights at the hospital with him. It was a very stressful time and the stress began to take its toll on my health. I started suffering chest pains and shortness of breath.
A lady I worked with started teaching some of us how to knit around this time. Nothing difficult just washcloths and scarves. What a life saver! I started carrying a little bag around with my little ball of cotton and a pair of needles. I was able to calm myself down and the pains went away. I would sit at my brother's bedside and knit will he slept. He enjoyed the gentle clicking of my knitting needles. We were able to relax enough and talk for hours.
I cherish these memories now because my brother passed away and now when I knit I think of him and all the talks we had and the laughs we shared. I also have many washcloths that I can attach memories to.
