Yesterday was a difficult day. I received the phone call I have been expecting and dreading at the same time. My dear friend and neighbor passed away early Friday morning. She had been in hospice care and was at home with her husband and 3 of her 4 children. I will miss her. She was like a second mother to me as well as one of my knitting mentors. I would go and visit her and we would talk about sock knitting and various projects. Her oldest daughter and I became quite close during this time. As soon as I learned of Peggy's passing, I cast on a prayer shawl for Mary. I sat with the family and knitted while we talked and reminisced. It helped me to be able to keep my mind occupied with the simple trinity stitch.
