The knitting artist Gunn-Ellen’s story is heartbreaking. She lost her 21 year old son, Daniel in an accident in 2018. His last 4 weeks of his life he was in a coma where she spent every day by his bedside holding his hand. The day he passed she lost a big part of herself. After a year in deep pain and grief she started asking Daniel for guidance. “A picture of him and me kept coming back to me. In the picture Daniel is wearing a knitted hat, and has a funny grin on his face. I knew he was telling me something. I started knitting hats.” “Ever since I was little I always loved making things, especially with yarn.
“Knitting hats has given me meaning, and comfort. Being creative makes me feel better, and so know that Daniel is proud of me.”
