The Hearts Queen Coat

Once upon a time (don't you just love stories that start with this?) there was a clever little girl who lived with her parents and younger sister and kitties and a dog on the chilly coast of Maine.

For her birthday, her crippled old grand-aunt gave her choices of designs and said, "I will make you one of these sweaters to keep you warm, if you want me to," and the delightful child chose the Hearts Queen Coat.

Then the grand-aunt gave her a choice of three different places online to choose the color of superwash yarn she wanted for her sweater, and the girl wisely chose DROPS  Big Merino in the color Marble. Then she waited. The grand-aunt was a bit busy at the moment knitting something else, but when she finished, she started knitting right away.

The grand-aunt loved knitting this coat because the yarn was big and squishy and beautiful, and the pattern was absolutely lovely. Soon she had this:

She loved how it looked, and she hoped the clever  little girl would too. She knew it would keep her warm.
