Everything else can wait until I finish this row…

Yarn chicken at the courthouse

on July 19, 2018

I played a mean game of yarn chicken today. I have been working on a pair of single sock (it’ll only be a pair of I don’t get 2nd sock syndrome) for my hubby. It has been the mindless project in my purse for weeks now, something to keep my hands busy when I have 5 minutes of down time or need to fight off some anxiety.

Which is a good thing I wasn’t done with it yet, because today it provided me with about an hour of anxious free time. You see, today I went to Federal Court for a hearing on a case of immigrant families that were seeking asylum, but got separated instead. Security took my phone, but I was able to keep my WIP which is what brought about this game of yarn chicken.

So satisfying!!

Something else that caused a sigh of relief is knowing that there are now two sets of parents reunited with their kids here in Connecticut. They are on probation for a few months and activist groups here hope that they will be given a path of citizenship so they can have the life that all immigrants hope for by coming to this country. You can read more about that story here: http://www.courant.com/breaking-news/hc-news-connecticut-immigration-court-status-hearing-20180718-story.html

It was a roller coaster of a day. Going into the courthouse I felt a sense of gloom, but coming out that feeling was replaced with Hope. Counting the stitches – 25 – as the tail of my yarn shrunk made Doubt consume me, but with 5 stitches left I knew I’d win the game of yarn chicken. Woohoo!!
