"The only gift is a portion of thyself."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ava, my sweet niece, turned 4 on October 2. She's an absolute doll- a spitfire with a twinkle in her eye and a song in heart. I wanted her to have something special; something she would have for years to come.
"I'll make a blanket," I thought. "Yep- I'll knit her a blanket."
I just gave it to her yesterday. (gulp)
