Need a Hug?

Sometimes life gets us down.  Political turmoil, natural disasters, accidental injuries, family discord, illness, job disruptions or losses, delayed or altered vacation plans...or simple loneliness -- any or all of these can grind down our spirits.

There's research out there that indicates that -- in addition to a few good belly laughs -- people need at minimum, four hugs a day for survival -- and at least eight (8!) to maintain health, especially for soul and spirit.  For growth, opined Virginia Satir, we could do with a full dozen -- each and every day!

What if, like me, you're single, or alone much of the time?  What then?

Well...you get your hugs were you can...from friends in your Yarn Crafting Group (like mine here at Knit Night every Thursday from 6 - 9 p.m.) or in a place of worship (some congregations can be very 'huggy'!)...from the kids in your life (your own or borrowed!)...

And yes, you can get a hug from your yarn -- well, this week, anyway!  đŸ˜‰

This week for our Super Special we're offering up...

A bulky yarn, knitting up at 9 stitches to 4", it's perfect for a quick, soft, embraceable  project, like a hat -- or turn it into a cozy cowl for a hug you can wear -- or share with a Special Someone!
