Filed under: Friends,Knitting a Gift

Showed up on a doorstep this afternoon. Someone’s flying off for college in the morning and I knew it’s cold where she’s going. It was just a little extra something.

They invited me in, we chatted a bit; I explained a little about Great Northern Yarns’ mink cashmere yarn (they’re sold out of the laceweight I used).

She asked me the name of the lace pattern as she petted her new cowl; she loved it. Then, since it was the last day her mom got to have with her till break, I got the heck out of their way.

But she was so sweet and so appreciative that it totally recharged my desire to get to work to do that for someone else. She’s a good one.

I don’t think you EVER get tired of doing something for others!
Just asking — anymore Parker pics?

Yay!! Nothing like a well-received hand-knit gift.

An appreciative recipient, for sure, if she asked about the lace pattern. Well done!
