Than never. Friday, when number five came home from school, I asked him if he would mind modeling something for me. Then i reminded him of last winter when he modeled the same item, in a different colorway, for me. He was fine with it. That kid is game to help out and he is a ham!
He put it on and said he was going to try to be serious to counteract the girliness of the item.
Mission accomplished I'd say. He had a terrible time keeping a straight face.
That was my last Christmas knitting so it is very nice to have it all done and ready to go!
My dad is dong well. An MRI showed a stroke last week, and he will definitely be undergoing either angioplasty or a bypass in two to three weeks. He has recovered from the stroke enough (and made such a fuss) that they let him go to the hospital. I saw him yesterday. He seemed pretty normal. i guess time will tell how this plays out, but the two branches of his carotid are 90% and 40% blocked, so they can't wait too long to fix that.
Thanks again for the well wishes and messages of support. They mean a lot!
