My dad went to Paris for his birthday. As an artist, it was his dream at 26 to go to Paris… but then, wouldn’t you know it, my parents had me and the big trip to Paris never happened. Oh the guilt.
Anyhow, they came back home last week and we celebrated his birthday here with a belated turkey dinner. This was our gift to my dad on his 60th birthday.
I knit a scarf from two balls of Noro Kureyon that I bought in Japan — I had already had this little project for my dad in mind when I bought the yarn. See? Stashing for a reason… it’s a good thing.
Richard knit a pair of fingerless mitts (foreground) with some Patons Classic Wool using the pattern from “Last Minute Knitted Gifts”. Very cool. I think he can (sort of) read knitting patterns now. My dad was very excited when he found out Richard knit them. Richard was very cool about it all, saying, “yeah, it took me just two days.”
I am going to attempt to go to my first spinning guild meeting tonight… Very intimidating. If I don’t post about it in the next few days it’s because I chickened out.
