As a preface, let me say; I have no right to tell this tale, no inside knowledge, only what I have observed. ( Maybe they fight when I am not around) :)!
Some time ago two women came into the shop, and we became friends. I discovered that they are sisters. Before long, they became regulars an knit night, and part of the "gang". They are there every Thursday night, even in the worst weather, and neither one lives very close to the shop. I won't tell which is the older, it matters not.
Dawn and Sue. Sue and Dawn. I think of one, I think of the other. Their devotion and love for each other is obvious. And inspiring.
Here is a photo of a shawl. Sue knit this shawl for her sister, and presented it to Dawn at last evening's knit night. It was not a surprise, Sue has been diligently working on it for about a YEAR! And she is a fast knitter!! The shawl is truly a work of art, and it is HUGE. Lace weight alpaca.
Here is Dawn modeling the shawl.
And here is Sue in Dawn's grateful embrace.
What is even more beautiful than the shawl--- Their relationship. So much dedication and compassion. I love Dawn and Sue. An example for us all. AND I love you too, GWEN and MARY BETH! (my own sisters)
