This weekend, a very special friend got married. I rarely see this friend, so it was an extra-special nice time, seeing her so radiant and happy with her new husband. Her new life. The wedding was also extra-special because I got to see another very good friend whom I also rarely see. And he was the officiating minister (a very non-religious minister, mind you) of the wedding. A good friend marrying a good friend. What could be more awesome?
This wedding, while serving as a milestone and changing the life of my friend Michelle, served also as a reminder of the importance of friends and their interest in one another's lives, even if it is from afar. I was reminded that my friends are interested in my life, even if they cannot be a part of it on a day-to-day basis, and they check in on me via the blog now and again.
My friends are, therefore, very much up-to-snuff on my latest handknits and yarn purchases. And, as my friend Michelle pointed out, very VERY familiar with portraits of yarn poised just so in bowls and such. But where is the life? When are they afforded a glimpse of what I am up to lately?
So, on occasion, I am going to attempt to incorporate some every day life and happenings between the knits and fibers. So that my friends can feel even the slightest bit involved in my life. Between the stitches there is life.
