I delivered to Maine yesterday a little cowl with bear embellishments for my darling nephew. I have been cheating slightly so far by sending on sweaters I knit for my own son when he was this age. It's not like I don't plan to knit for The Nephew so much, it's just that some of the sweaters he's received have been pretty good ones, like this Fiona Ellis sweater I knit for The Boy about seven years ago. It couldn't be more perfect for my sister's son than if I had knit it last week, and my sister loves the cousin hand me down provenance, or so she says.


But just to be safe, I made the cowl-hoodie for The Nephew because I knew he would love to wear it. And he does.
