I do not have much to shout about this month in terms of my own creations. I have two cardigans in need of completion. I have been using the yarn that was donated to the 'Rainbows Project' by the Loveknitting Team. If you need any last minute knitting or yarn supplies before the festivities do pay them a visit.
A couple of weeks ago, I had some very sad news from an online friend of mine. I asked her if she would mind me sharing her story. She gave me permission to share her very sad story. I think by sharing stories and information we can help others, educate each other and people may not feel so alone. Annette was looking forward to the birth of her grandson. She lives in the Midlands and her daughter lives in Ireland. Annette received a call from her daughter asking her Mom to be by her side as the baby she was carrying had died at 30 weeks. Annette made the journey to Ireland to be with her daughter as she gave birth to 'a perfect baby boy'. His name was Cory Peter and he weighed 3lb 6.5 oz. The family spent a few precious hours together before preparing for the Cory Peter's funeral. Sometimes it seems there are no reasons or no answers to explain a tragedy like this. It is a very sad fact of life. My words of comfort seemed inadequate. What can you say at such a time? I told Annette about the 'Rainbows Project' and I have also 'promised' to make ten Angel Pockets in memory of Cory Peter to help give some comfort to other families experiencing the tragic loss of tiny babies who sadly do not make it.
