I don't exactly remember the circumstances, but I do remember feeling both inadequate and grateful to be offered such a gift.

Having made for others and rarely making for myself, I know how generous this sort of gift is.
We talked about some of the prepared yarns I had available and she decided on my handspun Keyla singles. I sent her all I had left and included a skein of Bandit that I had spun last year for her trouble.
She decided to use all of the yarn I sent and included some of Wonder Why Gal's handspun too. She wrote about it here.

I'm not certain I can convey what this gift means to me. I bought the yarn before I bought Keyla. She was always a teacher for me, up to and including when we lost her over the summer.
Denise, Thank you so much for this wonderful, generous gift. I love it so much. :-)
The pattern is La Coeur Cowl.
