Example text

Everyone ignores the girl smoking while leaning against the concrete wall, no one makes eye contact. I loved that knitting brought me back that anonymity. The sisters didn’t notice me (or buy the book, for that matter). I hadn’t thought ahead, though. After an hour, I finished my sock. Worse, it was the second one, so I couldn’t just cast on again with the same yarn. I thought of doing something I’ve done in the past, which is to knit on with no regard for what the actual length was meant to be, planning to rip out the excess when safely behind closed doors, but I knew I had three more hours to sit at my book table, and I couldn’t bear the thought of later having to rip out five inches of useless sock.

But her stories were her business, no one else’s, not even her children’s. And as difficult as that was for someone like me, who loves to talk about loss, to accept, I have. I won’t ever know the stories. But it doesn’t stop me from wishing I did. 40 x x x A LIFE IN STITCHES DOUBLE CRO CHE T ohn and I met in Amsterdam, two American twentysomethings high on the thrill of backpacking across Europe (and maybe a little something else). We kissed in Dam Square under a full moon, and went even further on the hostel’s balcony, trains racing past us just yards away.

I lucked out. The yarn was gorgeous: Amy Klimt’s hand-dyed merino/ cashmere/tencel in self-striping red, pink, and white. Each color change was clear and crisp, and I couldn’t wait to get each stripe made. In the next three hours, I met dozens of new people, sold lots of books, and knitted almost to the heel of my delicious new candy-cane sock. The beast was soothed. I would survive. Even better, I’d have something to show for it. And I was reminded again that our craft, with its particular alchemy, changes time and effort into something beautiful and useful, whereas smoking just changed clean lungs into dirty, damaged ones.
