“But gloves from woman’s gentle hand,
Of cordial Friendship bear the wand;
And in return a single glove
Betokens emblematic Love.
Thy gift fair Ellen, then I take,
And cherish for the giver’s sake;
And while they shelter from the storm
My hands, the heart alike shall warm;
And speed for thee to God above,
The fervid prayer of faithful love.”
Excerpt from “To a Lady” in Poems of Religion and Society by John Quincy Adams

Check it out! I was stopped at a red light and spotted this skein of yarn in the rear window of the car in front of me. Hmmmm . . . a knitter?
And Goodnight will have orange mittens to match her orange stocking cap for our camp weekend!~
