Today I will mail off my contribution to the Red Scarf Project. I knit another drop stitch scarf. This time I used Filatura di Crosa College. It seems sadly neglected at Granny’s shop, so I figured I would give it a whirl. It doesn’t have as much yardage as the Stacy Charles Rittrato that I used for a teacher gift so the fringe wasn’t as plush.
In other exciting or scary news, the district is coming to observe Owen at his school today. I cast off the last sleeve on his pullover last night but didn’t run the ends. I showed it to him this morning and he smiled and put his arms up–to put it on. He knew it was his sweater. And wanted to wear it. I ran a few ends and wrote a note to his teachers not to cut any strings! Today, as the district observes my little boy, he will be wrapped in love and prayers and peaceful thoughts by me!
