My Best Tribute

Last night I took a little break from Christmas knitting to knit a a small black pennant. It didn’t take long, twelve stitches wide, simple stockinette stitch with two selvage stitches on either side. The bottom tapered at a two K2togs per row. This easy little streamer took about forty-five minutes to complete, but it was the most difficult thing I have ever knit. You see, this was, what I’ll call, a prayer flag. I guy I grew up with died in a car crash on Saturday. It seems wrong to write about this and post it online but this is my best tribute. I am planning to use this prayer flag to tag somewhere extraordinary.
