My birthday was May 2, so we celebrated and here is what Linda knit for me.
"This pattern, '5,190 Miles,' was designed by Melanie Berg. It is named because the designer is 5,190 miles from Portland. She lives in Bonn, Germany and works closely with my favorite--Knit Purl.
The shell pattern evokes the urban landscape of roads, rivers and bridges. Streaks of color dart through each half, just as one city tugs at your mind when you are in the other.
So. . . this now is named 2,309 miles, the distance from my doorstep to your doorstep in Adrian.
Distance is no barrier to our friendship!"
I must admit I got a little teary as I included that. Beautiful! Even though we have been texting, talking and FaceTiming, you can't hug using any of these methods. I'm sorry an emoji hug just doesn't cut it! May you have a friend who is as dear to you as Linda is to me.
We will be leaving Thursday for 10 at the Coastal Condo. I have some detective work to do while there which I will report back to you.
