A Special Order

My father doesn’t ask for much.  So when he does ask, I try to accommodate.  This time the request was a little out of the ordinary!

His turtles – ancient deck decorations – needed new hats.  The straw hats that they came with had rotted away.  Would I knit them each a jazzy new toque!?

These turtles are small and battered and I am sure that they must have many stories to go with them.  Now they have a new story….. and new toques!

Meet Harry and Sally – Dad’s Deck Turtles.
