When I was young, I played with yarn. I gave yarn to the cats, I made things with yarn.
Then I decided yarn was for old ladies and I didn’t want to have anything to do with yarn.
In my twenties, I bought a sewing machine and made curtains with it and sold the curtains.
When Mark and I first moved in together, I made us sunflower curtains. I haven’t used the sewing machine for years, haven’t seen a sunflower except at the grocery store. The days of yarn, sunflowers and sewing machines may be over, but I still know how to make curtains if I need them. I still remember the clicking sound the knitting needles made. They read the Narnia stories and I crocheted little rugs for my cats.
