Last night Wanda and I visited our dear friend Patrick in the hospital. We know Patrick from having worked with him at our LYS. He is very ill. We talked about knitting (what else would we talk about). It's clear that the passion Patrick shares with us for creating is helping him to overcome his health challenges. His room is full of yarn, patterns and projects in various stages of completion. Many of those who are visiting him are from the knitting subculture here in Toronto. I am totally blown away by the strength he is demonstrating in the face of a terrifying illness.
