This scarf truly represents a labour of love. It has been a shared lesson for over a year from my mother-in-law: a shared lesson in that I was probably teaching her patience and she was teaching me a more noble skill, that of knitting.
Oma was here for six weeks visiting from Germany. She taught and continues to teach me so much about love, life and pursuing the creative portions of my heart. She is supportive beyond distance, sacrificial beyond self, she is wise beyond years, she is sweet beyond honey. She is my mother … from another mother. I am made better as a result of her presence.
“Make others better as a result of your presence, and make sure that
impact lasts in your absence.”
