Silky Wool Seafoam Scarf

Greetings and Dear Cynthia,

So my mom and one of her knitting friends came for a visit a couple of weeks ago. They wanted to go to some of the yarn shops in Madison, and they knew I'm their gal for that.... While we were at the Sow's Ear, each of us bought one hank of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, with plans to make the Silky Wool Seafoam Scarf (a store pattern) that was on display there.

Yesterday, I quickly grabbed it before getting into the van for the trip to attend my nephew's high school graduation... I probably spent four hours total knitting during the drive, and have this to show for it:
It is currently 20 inches long, which means I was knitting one inch per every twelve minutes, or five inches per hour (5 iph :-) ....or 0.275 inches per mile... (LOVE math!)
We're having a nice weekend. I cried at the graduation yesterday when they played "Ordinary Miracle" during the slide presentation...a reminder that miracles can be seen in the simple everyday things we take for granted and often ignore.

Tomorrow evening my awesome sister is going to arrive for a short overnight visit. We plan to go running early on Tuesday morning (before everybody else gets up, when it's not yet 90 degrees outside like it is right now!), and she offered to help me clean/organize my kitchen after my kids leave for school. (THAT is an AWESOME SISTER!) I am hoping that it will be just the thing I need to springboard myself into spring cleaning the rest of the house...though I have my doubts...

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Be safe!
Warm regards,
Laura (YarnThrower)

Spring cleaning? Shoot, I knew there was something I was supposed to be doing.

Love the scarf!
