One of my friends is having a birthday party, and I want to give her something special (it's her 13th)--that is, if I actually go. But I shall be positive for now and assume I'm going--I wouldn't want to miss out. ;) Here's my haiku for her: The new birthday girl; The one who just turned thirteen. Oh, she is so old. [this line could also be, 'Oh, she's so ancient.' Either way.] I want to make her a gathered pouch and also a handknitted cowl/infinity scarf. Have you ever made a handmade gift?
