2nd July Prime Time KAL entry--croc scarf

The alligator scarf (croc scarf) was a big hit so much so that Fred even kept it on when we got home from the surprise party. Everyone loved it and some thought I should go into business making them. I tried to explain about a labor of love and how this is the one and only I'm knitting. The old fogies all wanted one. Nope...

The Chinese Army hat was a gift from a friend who flew from China where he was teaching pilots to fly the AirBus. The crocodile green birthday crown rubber band broke and the red star held it in place. Quite the ensemble, eh? LOL Morehouse Farm pattern and 2 skeins of yarn came with the kit. The scarf blocked is about 76" long. More details about it on my Rav project page. Well over the minimum yardage per project.

We had 4th of July decorations and a sausage (Aussies don't have hot dogs) BBQ at the hangar.

What fun you must have all had. Fred looks like he had a wonderful time.

Yes, it was a lot of fun. The friends now refer to our current plane building project as "open CROCpit". See below for the pic of it. I will have to come up with a scarf for me now in a peacock theme. :)
