This is my first attempt to design a knitting pattern.
I made this neck warmer for my daughter. She is still a child but in the process of defining her identity. She created this persona and called herself Jeremy.
At this moment, I don’t know what to tell you. She is no longer the little girl who loves pink and all the princesses. But she’s not quite a tomboy either.
I think this is a journey for both of us. I am trying to find a path to my crafts while she is just finding herself.
