When my mind takes a holiday (in other words,
decides to give worry and duty the brush off),
one of its favorite escapes is Nantucket. There
is in a corner of my mind a file drawer especially
designated “Nantucket Memories.” In it
can be found a ball gown of pink roses trimmed
in miles of sandy beach, cottages with silvered-
grey shingles outlined in frosting white, the
linen-y scent of a sea breeze and that glimpse
of ocean that teases from between the trees,
above the rose kissed dune grass, and from certain
second story windows. The best memories,
however, are those of the kindred spirits who
shared the joy of it all. Here are two little mitten
designs inspired by Nantucket’s Rainbow Fleet.
