Why I knit….quote (fiction)

“I knit the afternoon away. I knit reasons for Elijah to come back.
I knit apologies for Emma. I knit angry knots and slipped stitches
for every mistake I ever made, and I knit wet, swollen stitches
that look awful. I knit the sun down. ”
― Laurie Halse Anderson, Wintergirlswintergirls
