I thought this was a decent tribute to a dear late friend since I can't write poetry. It's the yarn I bought from my late friend's stash at a sale her family had recently.  I think it will be reminding me of her through most of the seasons.  As I looked through the yarn, I couldn't help but wonder what the stories were behind the yarns.  Usually she had one for each yarn she shared with the knitting group.  Her former business partner Laurie said she thought of stories she knew as she saw the yarn throughout the day. I'd rather there was more time and more stories, and less yarn.
