This hat used to fit Paul. It even covered his ears. Now, it looks like a longish kippah for a child.
And it is why this shawl will be hand washed, gently, always.
It came in the mail today, from my friend Jill. She chose the color of the sea because she knows how much I love to be by the water. It is soft, and gorgeous, and beautifully worked. It is a treasure, and I will treasure it. But not exactly for any of those reasons. I will treasure it because it was made for me, with love knit into every stitch, and with the purpose of making me feel that love.
So basically, it’s a blankie. Except you can wear it with a little black dress.
Jill, thank you. I love it.
