I’ve accrued a pretty large mental collection of people I ought to knit for, and I need to write everything down.
- Back in July, at a trunk show in Williamsburg, I told my sister Charlotte to pick out some yarns, because I was going to make her a pair of socks and a hat for her birthday (less than a month away!).
- I need to knit a pair of socks for my friend Jay, because he’s not only been a good friend to me, but also emailed me a photoessay called “Socks on a Train” (choice quote, “After a shower and commute to work, these socks give me the confidence I need to be successful in today’s competitive corporate environment.”), and also because I hear they’re wearing out.
- I also hear that my friend Shaddi’s jacket is starting to wear out.
- And Zac’s parents have been so incredibly good to us in the past few weeks that I feel moved to knit some nice things for them, too.
