My mum knitted these. She went through a phase of making loads of hats and scarves… and mittens and wrist warmers and neck warmers and… now I literally have drawers and bags full of them. There are only so many I will wear. Many of them I’ve never worn. But… I can’t get rid of them. And so I am carrying them through my life with me.

It’s hard to get rid of things that people have made for you. It feels like you are betraying them somehow, or aren’t thankful enough. I am giving you these. Carry them with you through your life.
