OH how tan I was!
Cherry made in 2007
Yarn: Elann Sonatta
I remember even now working on the sleeves during my epic 10 hr delay in Heathrow airport. I was the chaperone for a school trip taking 43 girls to Italy for two weeks. Did I ever tell you all about that experience? Due to some breakdown in the baggage area in Heathrow there was all hell breaking loose. So much so that for half of us on the trip had to wait an extra week to receive our luggage. Take a moment and think about this: 20 teenage girls without their luggage for One Week. TWENTY.
I learned patience, compassion and love that week. I saw girls who willingly gave of themselves (and their clothes) to those who saw this as the most devastating moment of their lives. Some pieces of luggage never made it back to their owners. I'm sure they shared their story in many a college application essay.
But let's get back to the sweater shall we? I love love love this piece – such a great construction and beautiful design. The yarn and sweater have held up beautifully since.
I'm currently in Portland leaving for SF tonight. This city is facinating to me. I'll speak more on that on Monday. I also have a finished and blocked Aidez to share… luvre luvre love.
have a great weekend!
