Created By: Dorisann Brandt

My mother was an avid knitter--one year knitting sweaters for the whole extended family, daughters, sons-in-laws and grandchildren for Christmas. I think the total was around 18, with hats included for the younger children.

I always wanted to learn to knit like she did, (continental style) and thought I would always have time. Then, out of the blue, Alzheimers struck. In the early stages we tried to knit together, but she was not able to remember the intricate movements of knitting. She came to live with us, and I determined to learn to knit and set out to teach myself.

Now, every time I pick up my needles, I pay a silent tribute to my mother and the love she passed down to us in the garments she made. As I stitch for my children and grandchildren, I pass that love along to them and remember all the other things that my mother taught me and grieve that I took it all for granted until it was too late.

However, the remembering is healing, and the movement of my needles is comforting.

Mother is still with us, but the ravages of her disease make it impossible for her to understand my gratitude for all that she so unselfishly gave us. Now, all I can do is give to her with my presence as she so willingly gave to us throughout her lifetime.
