Crikey! It’s a gator!

What a little beauty!

This project that makes me channel Steve Irwin is for my sister-in-law’s nephew who asked for a “red alligator” for his birthday. It’s a child-size scarf so it was a fast, fun knit. And I got to say, “Crikey!” a lot while knitting it.

And here’s a progress shot of a sweater I hope I can finish before it’s too warm for sweaters:
I decided I could buy yarn to make this, since it provided not only clothing but entertainment. (Not quite as much as the alligator scarf, though. Crikey!)
