See the lake in the background? It's where all the guys in our crew go ice fishing. Now that deer hunting is over here in Wisconsin, all the guys thoughts are turned toward the lake freezing over.
|The lake is trying hard....|
......and on to the story.
I was knitting away on a scarf for myself (yes...I learned) one Sunday evening after the family supper. This is how the conversation went....
6 yr. old grandson Ryan, "Grandma what are you making?"
"No this one is for me, would you like a scarf."
"What colors would you like?"
"Red and blue."
"OK I'll get right on it."
And that started an intense 3 weeks of making scarves for 10 grandchildren. There was no way I could make one for Ryan and not the others. I used up all the odds and ends yarn that I had made.
Not being particularly experienced in knitting yet, I told the parents that these would be fishing scarves. No one would look at what there were wearing on the lake :-). In keeping with the theme, I put actual fishing lures (hooks removed) on the tassels of the scarves of the boys....they were so excited. The girls scarves have fish beads on them. Yes....all the bigger kids go ice fishing. They have a grand time fishing and playing with their cousins.
So, tonight we had the "Blessing Of The Fishing Scarves", and the scarves were handed out to take home.

and look at the camera at the same time. :-)
They all really liked the scarves....even those
without a smile on the pic. :-)
