Garter Stripe Square Bag
This was a work in progress for far too long. I got distracted by life coupled with an enduring reading binge. It is a free pattern from Ishi-knit on Ravelry, and though written in Japanese, is completely clear to persons of any language, thanks to helpful diagrams and comments by previous knitters.
There was a knock on our window at 8:30 this morning, and it wasn’t someone to read the meter. My son’s best friend stood outside, anxious to deliver his Valentine, heart shaped merengue that she had stayed up past 10 to bake.
It was a lovely way to start the day, and I was impressed anew by her thoughtfulness. (She is also a perfectionist, as you can tell from the expertly crafted hearts.)
And I’m sure they taste delicious as well.
