WOTD blanket


Before they were born

I learned to knit

As I recovered from wrist surgery

So I could feel them

I rehabed with those two sticks, a skein and my notebook to keep track

Through hundreds of alanon meetings

Focusing on the miracle to come

I worked through the pain and soreness

But I got both done before my girls breathed their first breath

I got to feel them with what is left if my hands

And I can keep them warm forever
