And this is why I knit. I made the fingerless gloves and gave them to my good friend Heather. She is a very sweet and sassy girl who knows how to wear fingerless gloves :) I called her at about 10 last night (after I wove in the last end) and told her I was coming over. She lives in the building next to mine, so I walked over. I really have wanted to do something for her for so long. She has (numerous times) brought us steak, soup and other various goods. I gave them to her and she was THRILLED! She just couldn't believe that I'd knit them for her.
So, that is why I knit. I love to knit for people who really appreciate it. People who will adore what I've knit for them and will wear it with pride. This is why I knit. It's for the love, for the yarn, for those I love.

Lucky Heather! Too bad I live 3 buildings away. ;) But, you don't want to come over. All I have to offer you is a cold - and who wants that?
