My eighteen year old cousin Brenna is a foreign exchange student in Germany right now. She has gone through some rough times with the first family that was really mean to her and wouldn't let her speak with any of her family or friends in the States because "it wasn't necessary." Who does that? Who tells an eighteen year old kid that they're not allowed to speak to any of their friends or family for an entire year because you have problems with the country they're from?
Anyway, she is with a new family now that is a million times better and I'm trying to work on some scarves that I can send to her and her exchange family she is staying with.
Here is the beginning of her basketweave scarf.
