I stole it from the intended recipient.
Knitter's prerogative, don't you think?
All told, I think it took maybe four hours to knit, and the first one probably did, too. It's the super bulky yarn that makes it go so fast and not necessarily speed demon knitting skills. It's not often my big needles get a workout, but this week, they're smoking hot.
While knitting this weekend, I watched a show about the man who killed John Lennon. It's been thirty years and still makes me sick. Thirty years and we're still no closer to keeping guns and lunatics separated.
Imagine the music we could have heard if things had been different.
