Remember the prize yarn I mentioned on Monday? Dyed in honor of another little kitty named Charlie who has gone over the Rainbow Bridge? It's already been delivered to me, and it's even more beautiful and so much softer than I could have imagined.
It came on a day when I was missing my own Charlie so much. Pea had gone away over-night on a business trip, and it felt so lonely here. As much as I missed Pea, I knew I'd see him again the next day. But I couldn't help but think how nice it would have been to have Charlie with me for companionship, and knowing I'd never see him again was so hard. When this beautiful yarn showed up with the cute picture of the other Charlie, I couldn't help but think they both sent it to me to cheer me up. Silly, huh?
But I don't mind having silly thoughts, if they make me feel a bit better. I will knit every stitch of this gorgeous yarn with love for both kitties, and I will proudly wear the socks in their honor.
I miss you, sweet kitty.
