My skateboarding second grader knitted a pair of washcloths for me, accompanied by a very fine and lovely soap. I really can’t quite look at them enough. It’s one of those moments, you know?
I hope everyone had a happy Mother’s Day. I sure did: I got the full treatment, including a napkin with a Mother’s Day rap on it:
Yo Mother’s day
is like a day
4 your mama
so let her wear
I would like to extend an especially happy Mother’s Day to every single teacher, across the land, who helps our children figure out that their moms are insanely delighted to receive such tender gifts. People, there’s a yarnover edging on those washcloths!
PS Today is our wedding anniversary, so I am blissed out over here, pondering eighteen years of marriage how that can lead a person to end up with a pair of handknitted dishcloths. A pretty good deal.
