My Daughter
Created By: Gwen Nixon

I lost my oldest daughter to a truck accident. I have been a knitter off and on most of my life, pausing when too busy with a job, or whatever. Heidi, my daughter had given me some yarn she thought would look good in a sweater, the pattern I would have to find. It was a variegated blue, turquoise, etc, silky yarn, and I did find a pattern. I used black mohair as a backgroud color. The variegated yarn was a swirl across the front and back of the sweater. The contrast was vibrant. I realized, almost too late that it would be too small for Heidi to wear, and stopped working on it, tucked it away and forgot about it.

Through the years I took up knitting, and loved the cold winter nights in Colorado I could sit and knit. Suddenly I lost Heidi, in the prime of her life that had been so tumultuous and fraught with pain and turmoil. She was now free of her pain. My memories are softening with time, and I remember the wonderful things about my beautiful talented daughter, and I remembered the sweater. I must finish that sweater and tangle the memories with the stitches. I must remember that all is not lost. She had her life, and I was part of it!
