How knitting saved my sanity

I have always done some sort of craft all my life. It gives me a sense of pride when I complete a project. I started to crochet several years ago, but the action of the stitch was killing my hand. I picked up a "How to Knit" book and haven't put my needles down since. Last year in April, I lost my sister who lives in Indiana, while I live in Florida. My daughter drove and I forgot to pack a lot of things, but not my knitting. I was making a pair of socks, and spent many hours knitting my grief away. We got back home and it was only a month later that I got a call that no Mother ever wants to get. My 36 year old son lost his life to a heart attack. He also lived in Indiana. I don't know how I lived through it, but i do know that if I hadn't had my knitting with me to keep my hands busy, I probably would have lost my mind. I am alone now as my daughter and grandson have moved to Tenn. but I still have my knitting that will always be with me.
Thanks for listening, but I have to get back to my socks. Sharon in Pensacola
