no words


I know I titled this "no words" and actually I do have a few words to say. Monday, October 22 the love of my life, Craig Andersen, died of a heart attack. I am devastated. I had been working on making another lion curtain for him for well over a year. I had gotten to the 19th level & kept screwing up in the rest of the project because of the 19th row. I actually finally managed to get past row 19 and was probably up to row 26 or so. And it sat like that for a long time. It was a filet pattern & they seem a bit complex to me, especially with no directions, just the chart. So I thought really hard and decided I was not going to continue the curtain. I was making it specifically for Craig, so I don't feel compelled to finish it. So I ripped out what I had entirely. No lessons, no moral to the story, nothing insightful. Just hold on tight to your loved ones and make sure you let them know how much you love them and appreciate them.
