~Shoes and Socks....you understand this if you have ever worn high heels for eight hours, stood in front of a classroom full of Jr. High kids, spent half of your life in a gym on hard wood floors, broken and/or sprained both ankles, big toe, stuck your said ankle, toe/foot in a bucket of ice water, and have bunions.
~Relaxed Fit Stretch/Plain Jane Jeans...again, you get this if in the 60's you sat in a tub of hot water in your Levi's until they shrunk several sizes smaller than your epidermis. After which you wore them while they dried and until they would stand alone when peeled off your body. If that was not your skinny jean era, then you might be a 'Designer Jeans Gal', when it was any bodies GUESS as to how they figured a tall girl with no butt and no defined waist could fit into those hourglass waists, hippo hips, a wedgie crotch and 'SitOn Pockets' with forked studs and wire stitching.
Enough about the physical dis-comforts! Now for the Spiritual comfort!
When I first learned to crochet, it was not comforting. I've posted about those early years of doily disasters, skinny thread, and hooks the size of pinheads. It was so not Comforting that I gave it up for many years until the Age of Aquarius Era called for Granny Square Ponchos, Vests and Afghans. Oh, for the smell and feel of a skein of RedHeart acrylic...what a blessing to my life as a 'Free Spirited Hooker'...J Hook was my favorite and still is today.
This current Work In Progress was started with the thought it would comfort the person it is being made for. That's what 'Prayer Shawl's are meant to be...a comfort to infuse healing, good thoughts and prayers of protection...all thoughtfully worked into every stitch. Like I said, that was my intention from the first chain 4, slip stitch in chain to form a circle.
Instead....it has infused healing, warmed my heart, lifted my spirits, and protected my soul with every stitch.
I am so 'Granny Square Comforted',
what a blessing to my 'Golden Age Creature Comfort Spirit and Soul'.
Life Is Good!
