Happy Saturday!

Greetings and Dear Cynthia,

It is a glorious morning here today. The sun is shining, the temperatures are rising, and I'm wearing a brand new sweater!It has perhaps just a little bit too much ease around the torso, though for the most part, it is quite comfy and warm and I like it. Also, I think a white dress blouse having a collar will go better with it...

The boys and I played soccer and kickball outside yesterday. It was lot of fun. We went to the park and met up with some other kids and it just felt so great to be outside and active! I'm proud to say that I can still kick the kickball farther than my kids. (I have to say that right now, because I don't think I'll be able to say that by the end of the summer.....)

I also finished the Alligator scarf, well before it's deadline of my nephew's birthday in July. It was a very fun knit, though the acrylic/wool (75%/25%) yarn is not my favorite...but it is easy care for my sister (it won't shrink), so that is important. Also, I added six repeats to the main section of the body, because I didn't think it was going to be long enough otherwise...

That's all the news for now! I hope this finds you well, and would love to hear from you!

Warm regards,
Laura (YarnThrower)

Wow! That sweater looks great on you.

And that alligator...if I had some green yarn just hanging around, I would make one of those! Might have to break the stash embargo...

The sweater came out great! So did the scarf. I added some repeats to the body too. I thought it was too short as it was. It was a fun knit though!
