Dana’s Edit: Hope In Every Stitch

I wrote a little pre-Thanksgiving piece for Modern Daily Knitting about hope and knitting. Pop on over and give it a read. I saw my Mom and sisters a few weeks ago so we’ve decided to just do a Zoom Thanksgiving and will probably invite other family and friends to pop in too. As COVID-19 numbers are on the rise, my number one priority is limiting my exposure to limit my risk of contracting it and spreading it to my family and in my community. As much as I would love to laugh and be around the table with my family, it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to do virtually in order to have more holidays together in the future. I hope you’re doing the same and that you’re safe and healthy!

  1. My husband and I will be by ourselves this year with no family members at our table. But our church family, and anyone else we wish to invite, will gather on Zoom at 4:00 to share Thanksgiving greetings. And maybe show off our desserts. A happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Dana. Thank you for sharing a bit of your life with us.

  2. Smart, and the most loving thing you can do this year, too. Wishing you and yours a lovely virtual get-together and wishing you many many more years of real ones ahead.

    (And I’m thankful to people like you, for sharing their thoughts and talents and making everything a bit more manageable this year.)

  3. About the MDK article…I may have said it before, but I’ll say it again: your students are so lucky to have you as one of their professors. Also I love the Corita Kent quote. Thanks so much for your blog, Dana. Thanksgiving Blessings to you and yours.

  4. I started one-on-one phone calls yesterday. Having seven siblings, it’s going to take the rest of today. We’re tipping into our 70s, one each year. A gathering is not worth the risk. With luck, we’ll all be together next year.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and all you love.

    1. Happy Thanksgiving. Dana. I agree with your post. We need to be careful and safe to protect our loves ones. I love your posts!

  5. Have you seen the Corita Kent Gas Tanks in Dorchester, MA, outside of Boston? She painted this in 1971. It is unnamed, but referred to as the Rainbow Swash. I tried to post a photo here, but couldn’t get it to happen.

  6. I always find at least one ray of hope in each and every one of your posts. You are among the people I am especially thankful for this year. I wish you and your family much health and happiness in this holiday season and beyond. Peace be with you

  7. Thank you for taking time to give us all a way to hope and be thankful for small things. Thank you for reminding us to be thankful for babies, family and small things like Zoom sessions and knitting. Plus giving that knitting to others to extend the joy.
    Please be Safe. Happy Thanks Giving

  8. Thank you for your writing. It is always a joy to read, and I love, love, love your knits. I manage one sweater a year so am astonished at how you knit yours so quickly. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!

  9. Thank you for always bringing your whole self and your inspiration. I am grateful for you and your shine. As I was trying to type “whole” in the first sentence it was autocorrected to “shine”. Figured the iPhone knows what I meant. Blessings to you and your family.

  10. Yes indeed, I have not seen my mom in a year cause of covid. I live in another state. I am very much looking forward to seeing her in 2021 God willing.
