Easter Clues To A Vintage Knitting Surprise
Note to self: if you allow the daughter to create the clues for hiding the Easter baskets, be prepared to locate your high school Spanish and French dictionaries. Apparently watching one’s parents complain and moan as they struggle to decipher a multi lingual word jumble increases one’s teenage bunny day enjoyment.
The fact she thought ahead and made it “easy”, with each scrambled word containing all the letters necessary for each hidden non-English word, only made us feel more stupid.
The embarrassing agony was worth it in the end. My basket contained a vintage paper envelope for a Boye metal circular pin. I’ve found the needles at estate sales, but never the original packaging. Bill rescued it from a favorite thrift shop on the way home from work.
It made my day.
Note to Daughter: happy parents are to child as fully loaded kid basket is to Easter Bunny.
