I finished the gift for my Dad (pic later) and fnished one mitt for my niece. That means she will get the “knitter’s christmas gift.” One mitt wrapped up with the yarn for the other. Since I will see her dad (my baby brother) on New Year’s Eve day, I feel pretty confident that I can have them ready to send home with him.
Why will I see him during the day you ask? Well, my dad is having his other hip replaced on New Year’s Eve at noon. Then they plan on sending him home two days later and he’ll have a physical therapist come see him every day. Now, this is a scary proposition folks. Last hip, it wasn’t a pretty thing and he was in there for two weeks. WTF? I have a feeling there will be a lot of time spent at my parents house over the next few weeks making sure Mom’s not overwhelmed. I just hope this will end the pain he has been living with for the last two years.
This is a bit of a downer – how about a pic of the mitt?
Not too shabby, eh? I really love how cool this looks and fair isle can be fun!
Merry Christmas to all of you, stay warm to my homies in the north, and peace to you all.
