“It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I think this hot, muggy, rainy, stormy weather, combined with my husband's recent health problems, has finally put me into a bit of a melancholy mood. Sigh....

I think of it like, when the trees lose their leaves, they are lonely. The shawl also looks like leaves, so in theory you could have stolen the leaves from the tree, making it a lonely tree. OR when the tree loses its leaves, you could knit it a Lonely Tree shawl to make it feel better..." - downloadable pattern is $5.56|
