River otters are adorable, clever creatures. I know exactly why himself adores them. What I don’t know is why I ever agreed to knit him one. The idea was simple: spend two weekends knitting to bang it out for this year’s Valentine’s day present. Reality, however, is not quite as I imagined. Fifteen pages of a row by row pattern, it is not always one row per line. I am trying to be patient, and remember it is a gift for someone I love… but mostly, I want to hurl the thing across the room and set it on fire.
