This past year, a former student lost her mother. I was already in a mentor position to this student and now even more so, as she continues to heal. I wanted to do something extra special for this teen. Hopefully, it helped to ease the first Christmas without her mother.
This was past of our gift giving conversation:
Wow! You got me an infinity scarf?
I made it.
You made it?
You made it? You made me a scarf?
I crocheted it.
You made me a scarf? You. Made. Me. A. Scarf?! I love it! I love it! This is awesome!
<Big tight hug>
I used heather grey yarn (one of our school colors) in a v-stitch to make this infinity scarf. Then, I used slip stitches to connect the ends. I love how it turned out and hope to make more in the future.
This has absolutely been one of my all-time favorite gifts to give.
