<--This square, and #47 right after, were on facing pages in the Granny Square Book. Made with the same H hook, and some of the same yarns, this one is 6".
<--And this one is 8". Go figure!
My daughter Elena is coming to stay with me for a few days to help me.
I made two scarves for her that should have been in the mail a month ago. But alas, I am who I am! And she will be glad to have them here, where the temperature is still moping in the 40's (Farenheit). When she takes them back to Brooklyn she may have to wait until next fall to use them.
Perhaps I can get her to a little modeling while she is here.
Today is World Down Syndrome Day! 28 years ago I was dropped into life with a baby girl who had such a major heart malformation (double outlet, right ventricle), that she was not expected to survive. For two years we held our breath every day, not knowing if there was a tomorrow for her. And at two years of age, she had her lifesaving repair, the first successful DORV repair in our part of the world, and since I've never found another older person with a repaired DORV, maybe even in the whole world. And oh...btw, she has Down Syndrome.
So glad to have the best teacher I could ever have in my life!
