Family reunion

I told you I was going to block things tonight. Look, three little baby sweaters blocking together. They look like three friends, playing together and yet they’re eventually off to different babies and different families. Still, it feels like these three baby recipients are somehow connected. They will all have sweaters that blocked together and was made from the same knitter. Once I put my label on thr sweaters the babies will always be able to recognize each others through those labels, even when I’m long gone and the sweaters are worn by other babies. That it a nice thought, what if, many years from now, there will be a different kind of family reunion where people from all over the world would meet up as long as they have something handknit from me. Wouldn’t that be simply amazing?
