Just beautiful, thank you for sharing it. I got to spend time with my daughter before she got stationed in Japan. She had to have some surgery (minor, she's fine, thank God) and we stayed together in a hotel while she recouperated. I had just taught her how to knit, so she was on one twin bed and I on the other. I set up the camera and took a picture of the both of us knitting together! Then she went off to Japan....

That was a wonderful to read, like everyone it did bring a tear to my eyes. It has been a few years now that my daughter left the nest.

I did try as a child to help her to knit but at that time it was not in fashion.

When she had the kids she tried again nope. She does crochet and loves that.

So when my grandchildren got older I taught them how to knit.They are still off and on with it but they do have the knit stitich down pat. My grandson picked it up first and then my granddaughter.
It is a wonderful thing to be able to teach our children to pass on a wonderful craft knitting.

So again congratulation on being published.

Her father and I pack her up and move her this Thursday... I hope it gets easier... not really sleeping much this week. She's so excited that I don't want to put a downer on her mood by saying how sad i am... I guess there'll be time for that after she's up there and having the time of her life.

It's the prospect of the empty rooms that make me sad...

But, this is the goal, the hard-earned end result of parenting and I keep telling myself that this is what's supposed to happen... Doesn't make it easier though does it...

Congratulations on getting published! I'm a writer (although I haven't been writing much lately) and when I first got published I was so elated, in heaven. I was published in a book of monologues for women (actresses) and I remember the first time riding the escalator in Barnes & Noble and thinking "I'm a published author in this bookstore!!!! whoaaaaa!" That's a great thing, you and your daughter knitting together. I was thinking, since you are sad about the empty room and her absence, maybe you could go out and teach someone else to knit somewhere? Or a volunteer thing? Also, keep writing! Writing is such a good way to um, conquer your loneliness or difficulties. I enjoyed reading it!

Congratulations on being published ( Dad!).

Our son didn't officially move out until he married, which was fine with us as we're very close. When he did I gained a crafting room in that house. Always a positve to go with the negative.

I really liked what you wrote about sitting on opposite ends of the couch knitting. I got the same feelings sitting with my broken leg propped up watching my son cook for the family when he was fifteen. All the years of teaching being used creatively to help out when we especially needed it.

Hope you continue to write and to let your Dad badger you into submitting your work.
