Some of my favorite gifts are things that people have made me. I have this teal crocheted scarf that one veronicam knitted me a while ago. Its really skinny and long so I can wrap it a million times around my neck. It matches everything. I can wear it pretty much anytime I feel like it. I have worn it down to the perfect softness. It’s almost like a security blanket.
I remember when she first gave it to me, she was a bit aplogetic about the length. “I’m sorry, I just kept going and I didn’t realize how long it is. And If you don’t like the color, I totally understand,” she said to me before I had even unwrapped it.
Little did she know.
If I ever lose this scarf, I will be sad. And I will promptly text or twitter her to let her know that she better have some of that yarn stashed away because I will want her to make me another.
I think I shall make her a wedding present instead of buying one.
