What’s to say? I miss her. Goodnight misses her too. Neither one of us is fond of Mother’s Day for our own reasons – all understandable.
To honor what we were both feeling last evening as we talked about Mother’s Day, I designed an Illusion face cloth with an image of a hand.
Goodnight’s mother, my daughter, was an adult when she passed away, so the hand image is not one of a youngster. I chose to knit the hand in black to give the impression of a shadow.
Isn’t it most appropriate that the hand we miss holding . . . . disappears?
Here’s a link to the PDF file knitting pattern: Hand I Used to Hold Illusion Face Cloth
I offer this design and knitting pattern as my way of honoring those courageous mothers who know the same loss I do – the loss of a child (no matter the age).
Best wishes on this impending Mother’s Day holiday that leaves some us a little . . . . quieter than usual.
