My dorm roommate my first year of college was Becky. We had been friends in high school and thought it would be good to room together that first year on campus. I think we both had a lot to learn about living with other people (which we did), something I think is completely normal your first time away from home. We lost touch after that first year and only recently reconnected thanks to Facebook. Becky had offered to make Sophia a box of hair goodie (she’s handy with the glue gun) and in return, I offered to make her something. She wanted a cowl scarf. I ordered the yarn she wanted from Purlsoho and then the project just sat there.
I’m not a fast knitter in the best of times and it has been sewing season. While packing for our beach trip, I knew I wanted a knitting project to work on. Becky’s scarf was just begging to be taken to the beach. We sat on the beach and I pulled out that lovely baby alpaca yarn and began. Before I knew how it happened, Becky’s scarf was complete. Sophia even found a pretty dark and light brown striped seashell to match!
I wish I could say that the scarf is perfect, but I knitted it, so that’s not going to happen. I hope she enjoys it this fall.
