A few weeks ago, life threw me a whole lot of lemons. Luckily, I have some amazing friends who helped me through it: calling, texting and emailing often, bringing meals and even watching my kids... a lot. When I sat down to write each of them a special thank you note, I just couldn't do it. Some things are too difficult to put into words. So I said thank you the best way I knew how... with love and time and yarn. I made each friend a handknit gift.

(I know it's a bad picture, I swear this is the softest hat in the world - a must-knit for knitters.)
Knitters, the next time you feel the need to say thank you... knit something. I guarantee that both you and the recipient will feel happier because of it!
