Brother's Fine Red Wool Hat


If I could have knit you a fine red wool hat I would have.
It would be made from the world’s finest wool, it would be a very handsome hat, care-fully knitted to protect your hard round noggin and keep your big ears warm.

Your Fine Red Hat would bring tons of compliments people would say things like;
I sure do love your awesome hat! And that hat makes you look so smart and confident. I wish I had a hat as cool as that. Where ever did you get it?

You'd proudly say; my big sister knitted this hat for me.
It took her a lifetime; she used the finest wool and knitted every stitch with love.
She made it red because blood is thicker than water and it's my favorite color.
She made it to protect my hard round noggin and to keep my big ears from freezing in the wind.

I am sorry to hear about your brother...so very sad. And in the midst of it taking time to read my blog and leave such a hopeful comment. Thank you dear friend.
I will be keeping the both of you in my prayers/thoughts.....
Be well, and love your new picture. You remind me of a very dear friend. xxpatti

Patti,
Yes finally after the shock wore off (sort of). I wrote a poem and went to your blog. I'm not very good at it but it really says it all.
Funny how things seem to fit together.
I'm accepting myself more these days i.e. the picture.
Judy
