Friends are like circular needles

Like a knitted Cast On to your circular needles you create a chain. A long chain of life’s events, your up’s and your down’s. Chains filled with your youth, friendships, adulthood, marriage, and family. And somehow I dropped those chains that were filled with friendships, as you know chains are important for they are the foundation of your project. Just like friendships are needed in your foundation of life. Friends are someone outside of family who let you speak loudly, let’s you cry freely, let’s you vent about fears and dreams. Like the circular needles, I found my dropped chain when I needed it the most. I cast it on my hook and joined it onto my existing chains and complete the circle. I can’t go back and place the chain where I dropped it but, with this beautiful friendship there’s no need to it’s right where it should be. Now with the joined chains comes many possibilities. We can become socks, a hat, a cute stuffed animal, or my favorite an infinity scarf. Thanks Rainy for being my scarf!

About doublepointedlove

My domain name doublepointedlove derived from my love of knitting. My first knit project was a pair of socks for my husband in which I had to use 5 DOUBLEPOINTED needles. If you ever worked with them it’s quite intimidating. I was determined to make these socks and when I finished I fell in LOVE. Now since then I have created scarves, hats, blankets, sweaters, whatever I could. I did this for many years and wanted to try something new. Now I’m creating paper flowers for photo backdrops and crepe paper flowers for bouquets. Hot glue burns and paper cuts are now my reality. I have made this my full time job and enjoy every second. And though my focus has changed since I started with this domain name I won’t change it because, it reminds me of how my love of art started from a set of double pointed needles!
