|Timeless Pullover knit with Aloft|
I finished the Palette sampler sweater. That is, I finished the knitting. The underarms still need to be sewn up and I haven't woven in any of the ends yet.
The sweater fits great and I love the ribbing on the entire forearm, but I'm not so sure about how the sleeves balloon out above the ribbing. If I ever make another with this style, I will decrease at a much faster rate before starting the ribbing. I'm still not sure how I feel about the colors/stripes. I love the colors individually but... I can't help but feel like I'm going to look like an overweight orange zebra when I wear it.
A turtle crawled out of the swamp to join our 4th of July gathering.
To give you an idea of his size, because I know you are intensely interested, that's a trenta Starbucks cup for size reference.
Miss Hayden came over for 4th of July and enjoyed skinny dipping. We know she likes swimming on top of the water but it's debatable whether she enjoyed swimming under it.
Because we have THE best daughter in the world and said daughter likes to cook, Mike and I were free to spend the morning of the 4th floating together. Neither of us are very touchy-feely and we rarely hold hands. I'm not really sure how he feels about it but for me, after about 3 minutes you better let go of my hand or you're going to get punched. It makes me feel like I'm hand cuffed or something. But, we kept bumping into each other and I laughingly suggested we hold hands so we'd move in unison... and we spent the next two hours holding hands in the pool. It was really nice, except for the fact Mike hadn't put on sunscreen and now he's glowing so red you can see him from outer space.
And no, Covid has not been kind to my bangs.
But despite Mike's sunburn and my wild woman bangs, we had a great Independence Day. Hope yours was happy too!
