So, a funny thing happened on the way to the bind-off. It’s a perfect depiction of everything I love about knitting.
The morning after I wrote the last post, I woke up feeling like a neon sign had fallen on my head: I didn’t need to look or wait to see who should own the bandana, the perfect recipient was right under my nose. Sure, Florida may not be the first place one thinks of to wear a woolen knitted bandana, but it gets chilly there too—especially when out in the pasture with your horse. The moment the idea came to me, it was undeniable. There was no point in even considering taking the piece home to block—it needed to stay right where I was. No one would get more joy out of this pink and purple wonder than the little girl who had lent me her bedroom!

A quick conversation with Mom and Grandmom okay’ed the offer, produced a iron and board to steam-block the piece, and made the gifting complete. The small size and little girl colors couldn’t have been a better fit. I left with a huge smile on my face, and it seems like Savannah enjoyed her gift.
Thank you, Yarn & Stitches, for making this wonderful moment possible.
