Hello from Germany,
those who follow us on Facebook or Instagram probably already read why I didn't blog for such a long time.
My dad died on the 29th of November. I am heartbroken and miss him so much. He was just 60 years old and the best dad I could ever wish for. Loving, caring and always there for us - I could always rely on him and I hope I can carry on his legacy of love and caring for the rest of my life.
Grief comes in waves these days. Some days, I am doing fine, other days everything brings me to tears. Right now, I have tears in my eyes again. I hope he is watching us from above and feels the love we all have for him.
We spent his last days at his bed side at home, something I am forever thankful for. During this time I had to keep my hands busy and decided to crochet some kind of prayer shawls.
I decided on the Elise Shawl pattern, a pattern I had in my to do list forever. So I got different sock weighted yarns from the LYS in my hometown and started crocheting. Three weeks after my dad's death, I already made several of these shawls and gave one as a gift already.
The pattern is quite addictive and it calms my mind, so I think I will make many more over the next weeks. I might block the shawls at some point but at the moment I don't have anything large enough to block them on yet. As I went down some hook sizes (4,5 mm instead of 5,5 mm), they are fine to wear without blocking as well though, so I am not too worried.
Hugs from Germany
