She wrote love to the last page

For those who have not yet heard: author Cat Bordhi was a master teacher, both in knitting and in life, and her daughter worked from home from her home with her young son these last few months, keeping his grandmother company as she gradually slipped away from us all. I’ve met Cat. She was a lovely, loving soul.

I have a pair of socks she designed, socks like no pair I’d seen before, and it is a fitting honor to her that they were knitted and gifted to me as a complete surprise by a friend who knew I would love them.

It’s so sad. She was brilliant – I knit a mobius from her instructions. Somewhere I have a book she signed for me.

I’m glad her daughter and grandson were with her.

Oh, dear. Such a loss, and so terribly sad. We knew she was going, but still, so very, very sad. She left us a wonderful legacy to honor her always.

I never met her, but all I ever heard of her were wonderful things. A sad loss indeed.

this was news I needed before I went to church today. Church today for the first time in months. Sat by myself in one of the small rows. No handshaking for me, bumping elbows is ok. LOL.

I had a feeling something happened. Her Rio Calina cowl was trending hot again on Ravelry.
She will be sorely missed by her family, friends and knitters. Her knitting brain was so full of things the rest of us didn’t see till she brought them to life.
