I have a coat
It is funnily shaped which makes it inconvenient
But it is attractive as an object
Square, lined wool blanket
With a wildlife scene as a frieze on bottom
Buttons, like cuff links, were meant to hold it together on the sides
They broke
I decided to knit long thin ribbons to serve as ties, yarn for which I coincidentally had the perfect weight and color (that of baked pumpkin pie)
Having determined the needles, width and length
I set to work
First one done, 7 stitches across and a yard long
Perfect
(Not the knitting, necessarily, but the function)
Begin the second
Eloise comes along
What’s this?
She wants to know, eyeing the finished one
She takes it up
She whips it though the air in all different directions like a cat with a feather on a string
She rolls it up:
It’s a cinnamon roll
It’s a mountain
It’s a cupcake
She makes it a tiny jump rope
Then a comical too small scarf
She asks “May I have it?”
How could I say no?
A talisman in an instant, that thing belonged to her the second she saw it
She slept with it last night
Now to finish the second and begin the third
