WIP It!


The majority of this long, hot day has been spent on the telephone and knitting. Papaw is obviously missed, and it seems everyone came out of the woodwork to call “just because”. I think it is adorable that people call and try to pretend that they are not checking up on you, it gives me the sense that I am not alone in missing my Papaw today, and maybe a little warm and fuzzy as well.

Plus it seems that being stuck on the phone for the majority of the day is the perfect catalyst for knitting, I finished two WIPs today! I don’t want to say it is a universal truth that people wanting to share in grief don’t like silence, but the amount of dancing around the issue seems true across the board. I have heard from people I haven’t heard from in a year and spent nearly an hour on the phone with my grandmother reliving the greatest hits of my Papaw’s life. Things I didn’t remember, things I will never forget, almost all of them gut-bustingly funny.

He would LOVE that.

So now it is evening, a time during which I am normally asleep but still awake today and full of knitting potential. I believe that I will put on my audiobook, I am listening to It by Stephen King and can I just say that Steven Webber as a narrator is phenomenally good? I was so unexpectedly delighted by how he made some of my favorite characters come to life. So with that, and probably a very poorly written post (I am half asleep to be brutally honest, but the phone is sure to ring again anytime now) I will leave you with my favorite quote from my new favorite audiobook.

Don’t it make you want to go home?
Don’t it make you want to go home?
All God’s children get weary when they roam
Don’t it make you want to go home?
Don’t it make you want to go home?
– Joe South
