What IS the weather?

I don't knit for others. In fact at quilt guild the other night Glenna asked when do I knit for others and I promptly replied "When Hell freezes over." and briefly felt bad for being rude. The rudeness was proven worthy though as she went on to ask for a Christmas stocking. NOPE, NOPE, NOPE.
But warm places may be experiencing a chill. I was knitting a Louisa Harding cowl a while back and Monika had dropped the unsubtle hint that I should make one for her Mom, who is always cold and 96 years old.

Monika was there for the rudeness.
So you can imagine her confusion the next morning when I waddled up carrying a take out container and gave it to her.

She was especially confused when she opened it and found a big caterpillar instead of Noms.

A simple washable cowl with a touch of sparkle in a very soft yarn. Fewer calories and more satisfying than leftovers.

That is so sweet of you. I just saw this post. I agree about knitting for others. Totally agree but this was amazingingly sweet and I bet your co-worker's Mom was very happy to get it. Chelle
