Busy, busy weekend moving my dd into her freshman dorm! The reality is starting to set in — my first baby has flown from the nest. Here she is in her bedroom at home wearing the Parisian Beanie Beret from Stitch Diva that she commissioned me to do pronto. It’s in Karabella Aurora 8 in a colorway whose name escapes me at the moment. It was a lovely, soft yarn to knit, but tended to unravel as I used the cabling technique with no cable needle. I plan to use it again though, but with non-cable stitches.
Also, I included some detail shots. She wore the Beanie practically every waking hour since it was finished and we said our farewells on the campus to her wearing it. Very comforting for both her AND me….
Starting to get sad, but excited for her, too. I keep telling myself there’s always texting and e-mail and phone calls and even Skype calls since we both have cameras. But her bed room is achingly empty tonight….
