Memorial Day Visit and Kicking Off the New Project

This weekend was filled with hugs and kisses from my two favorite little boys. Since it rained most of the time we didn't get to do much until the sun finally came out on Monday in time for the Memorial Day Parade. Moose learned how to honor our veterans and our flag.
Leo was a bit overwhelmed by the loud music but seemed to enjoy the rest of the parade.
I hated to let them go home. Now that Leo is starting to talk we have more fun than ever. 

The Chicks have some finished items for our next donation already.
I finished the ripple scarf and blocked it yesterday.
 It measures 8" X 60" which gives it a good two turns around the neck.
Kathleen started a pair of colorful child size mittens today. I think she has enough yarn to make a matching scarf too.
She finished the cardigan I showed you two weeks ago. She used a soft cotton yarn and searched through her button bin for just the right button.
The color is perfect!
To that she added two hats and matching mittens. There is another hat hiding under the green hat too.
Liz finished the top down pullover which turned out nice and soft.
Carole started a cowl with Cascade 220, a great superwashed wool yarn.
Maureen started a baby sweater worked seamlessly from the bottom up. The hem edge has a pretty loopy design.
So we are well on our way to filling the supply for The Capital City Rescue Mission.
