When my younger sister Windy left back to Texas, I wasn't as upset as I was the last time she came to visit because I'm not as alone/by myself here in New York anymore.
Luckily and coincidentally all (well, most) of my best and closest friends live here. We didn't plan on moving here as a group; it just happened like that. (I didn't want to move here in the first place. It's too far from home. Sometimes I think I'm a momma's boy.)
I didn't feel as empty when Windy left because I knew I was still in a place with people who love me.
So, I guess the bottom line is that I don't need my sister. =)
Anyway, here's a scarf I made for Windy months ago—and finally gave to her once she came to see me:
(The very awesome/nice yarn is made by Hobbledehoy.)
I made her take that right before I walked her outside to the cab.
It was so cute when she was here.
I taught her how to knit before she left. She caught on pretty quickly, and that made me proud. We even went yarn shopping.
Let's hope she sticks with it and gets to be very good at it.
Not better than me of course.
I have a very fragile ego!
