What was once three sweater vests and one sweater
has been transformed into a lap blanket.
First came the crocheting of hexagons,
lots and lots of hexagons,
in Pepto-Bismol pink, pale lavender
and two pretty shades of blue.
Trimmed out in charcoal gray
they were ready to come together.
And I took them with me
everywhere all summer long.
Delayed by the busy holiday season,
it was neglected for months.
I picked it back up Christmas weekend
and finally finished it.
Alice thinks it is hers, but it is mine
as it fits my lap perfectly.
Maybe I will share it with her though.
