Several months ago (actually, if I am honest, it must be at least a year ago) I found a pattern in a knitting store in St. Louis that I could not resist. It was so long ago that I am not even sure that the store is still there.
The pattern was for a knitted snake scarf. Incredibly cute, I thought, for my nephew J, who at the time must have been about five (now the truth comes out: that was THREE years ago; please don’t tell anyone).
Anyway, it has taken me until now to finish the thing. And it is cute.
At least I think it is.
The problem is that now my nephew is too old to be caught wearing a snake scarf,
and to be honest, he was a little skittish about it even at five.
So the question is: who gets the snake scarf?
Give me a good answer and it’s yours (or theirs).
