As the sunshine is slowly returning, my thoughts keep going only in one direction, something I have been dreaming of all winter: using up any little patch of grass I can find in this beautiful city for sitting, lying, napping, knitting, reading, studying, sunbathing, smiling…
Made for: Mina, in India

I never took proper photos. And, as things go, I never got photos of the recipient wearing it. Actually, in this case, I never got any feedback from the recipient whatsoever! (One of my classmates at a summer school asked me to make it for his girlfriend, I made it before the summer school ended and he took it home with him. We haven’t kept in touch much since, and when I tried asking him about it, I never got a response.) Wherever Blueberry Girl is now, I hope she’s in good hands and she’s making someone happy…
I named it after Neil Gaiman’s wonderful picture-book Blueberry Girl. The poetry is sweet and magic, and the illustrations match it perfectly. You can’t go wrong with it, whether your intended recipient is a girl or a mother-to-be. I want it for myself! :)
It was also my first attempt at a ‘label’. Blush.
Oh but I stray! What I really wanted to do was ask you – what’s your favorite thing to do on the grass? :)
