Yesterday, I took a little time while the rain was pouring down outside to finish, yes finish, Miss Olivia Fern’s sweater. A sweater in the likeness of her brother’s lucky purple sweater. I hope it sees her on just as many adventures!!!
I cast on for the project (ravelry link) just before her October birthday with the delusional sense that it would somehow be a present for her big day. Well… not quite. But I’ve learned with hand-knit garments that the calendar needs to be disregarded and the gift given whenever and wherever the finish line is crossed. I relish that moment: “the-moment-of-handing-it-over”. It gives me great satisfaction to see the appreciative smile as well as the empty knitting needles. Hmmmmm… what shall I cast-on next?
