I have a work friend who crochets beautiful baby blankets for new babies born into the company family. You have to be special to D to get one but over the 10 years I’ve been there she must’ve made at least a dozen.
A few months ago I started asking when she was going to make me a “knee rug.” It was what I would call “joking on the square” – a desire made to sound like a joke. She asked “what the hell’s a knee rug”…. Well, LOL, when I scanned the internet I found most results were Australian or English and related to charity knitting groups and geriatrics!!
Recently a new baby was shown off in the office swaddled in one of D’s blankets in a beautiful purple colour. I immediately sent D an email: “I’d like my knee rug to be deep purple please 🙂 “……
She told me how annoyed she’d been when I’d sent that email about the purple because she’d already started one in lilac! So mine is two tone. But that’s okay because I will be able to line my TV dinner up on the dark sections….
I brought it home from work today; a day when it was 72 degrees! I don’t care that I don’t need it this evening I’m snuggled under it anyway!
Thank you Miss D.
