Notes

Road-trip project!

This yarn is exactly the same color as the grass (the just-rained-on-but-not-quite-prairie-grass grass) in western Nebraska, which I used to think was very flat and God-forsaken, but have come to realize is a very beautiful stretch of untouched prairie. :)

I didn’t actually work on this as much as I expected during the two-week drive ‘cross-country. Still, I did get it done in a snap and will always associate the trip with this super cute top.

We came across these super cute prairie dog babies at Devils Tower in Wyoming (which is why the grass doesn’t match the Madtosh ;) ). Awwww!
