The scarf...oh, dear scarf. My lovely friend Agnes, knitting and gardening mentor, who was a pioneer in her own right though maybe not in the way you'd expect, gave me this scarf. It was given to her by an Indian co-worker, about 40-odd years ago; she used the sari fabric to make a lovely tailored dress (fitted bodice, full skirt) that I now have in my closet. This scarf was a tacked-on embellishment on the dress. I took it off and wear it wrapped around my hair all the time (see Garlandy Goodness post!). It's especially precious as Agnes is now in the hospital. More on that another day.
The dress I picked up before I was married, before I had kids. I just couldn't resist it, and hoped I'd someday have a little someone in my life who would wear it. And what do you know? It fits Violet to a tee.
