Eglantine watched her oldest daughter’s work. “You just dropped another stitch, Pearl. Best fix it now.”
Pearl shrugged as she undid her last few stitches. “Doesn’t matter that much, I suppose. This scarf is only intended for Frodo for my birthday. And it’s not as if we were still planning to marry.”

“The warmest sweater I can knit to keep him in mind of my love of him all throughout the winter.”
Eglantine sighed deeply. Her Pearl could have been Mistress of Bag End, after all.
