don’t let go of the beloved

S and I have this lovely, comfy cotton skirt with giraffes all over it that we’ve had for, literally, years.  It is soft, and it is happy to wear because it’s covered with giraffes, and it feels good swirling around your legs.  But, alas, like all beloved clothing, it is beginning to wear out.  There are little tears and fraying bits, and the other day at work I had to cut a chunk off the bottom of the skirt where it had ripped because it was hanging down and tripping me.

So I am going to cut the skirt into strips and knit it into a scarf.  And it will be soft and happy.  And it will be a keepsake.  The giraffes will be nothing more than white flecks on the black background, but their spirits will still be present.
