My friend Pauline adores chocolate. It's hard to purchase this confection for her because her standards are so high! But I've found something - something deliciously chocolate, something decidedly decadent. Classic Elite Montera - 50% llama, 50% wool.
It is just the right weight for a Portland winter - I can envision it wrapped around her shoulders, protecting her from those maddening winters that boast rain with the snow! Not to mention the wind. It won't arrive for Valentine's Day, but that's ok. She and I both understand that patience is a virtue - especially when one is waiting on Something Hand Knit.
I have been spending a lot of time with my sister and my mother as we revolve our posts at the nursing facility. My father is slipping away and we are standing (and sitting) sentinel. Tomorrow we will have Hospice come for the first time. Just in case I'm unable to pop back in here- wishing you all a loving and love-filled Valentine's Day! I'll want to hear all about your flowers and chocolates and dinners and gifts - I'll need your vicarious thrills!
