Warm Wool Sweater

Recently, I knit a wool sweater for charity on the Bernat Blog. When I finished the sweater, I put it in the trunk of my car, so I could mail it when I'm out teaching.

Well, I've been sick lately, going to the doctor a lot, and only able to teach piano lessons occasionally. So, I haven't made it to the post office yet.

The other night, I was at choir practice at church, and it was a chilly night. I didn't have my jacket with me, but remembered the thick wool sweater in my trunk. So, I took it out, and tried it on. It fit!

Warm and Comfy

And gosh, was it warm and comfy!

I was SO tempted to keep it for myself, but my conscience reminded me that this sweater is for a very cold person in Mongolia. They certainly need it more than I do. I have plenty more jackets and sweaters to keep me warm.

So, it's back in the trunk now, ready to be mailed. At least I enjoyed wearing it once!

I hope you are feeling much better. So sad to hear that you have not been feeling weel.

The sweater looks great! Someone in a far away land will be so warm because of your thoughtfulness.

How's the crocheting coming along?

Blessings always

Thank you, my friend!

I caught Influenza A about a month ago, and it really messed me up. I'm just NOW getting over the cough and congestion. Whew! I'm definitely getting a flu shot next year.

I've been crocheting a LOT for the Bernat Crochet & Knit Along for Project Linus. I'm making 2 crochet baby blankets, and 2 knit baby blankets.

I hope you're doing well!

The sweater is so pretty, and it really did look good on you...but you did the right thing, being the giver you are. :-)
