This was back when knitting in public was something people didn’t see very often. When perhaps eight or ten people were already gathered around the tables, staring at our work in the dimness of the bar, another woman joined us. She said, “You’re the knitters. ” “Yep,” I said.

I’d lost the ability to make entries in my journal, because whatever I wrote felt false, angry, untrue, and unnatural.
