For Father’s Day the ex and our two children went to Mom and Dad’s (“D” H chose not to go guess where instead, ex went since DH wouldn’t). It was wonderful to spend time with my sisters and their families and discuss the upcoming family camping trip, past events, remembering the good times and a few not so great that we survived. (even laugh about now!)
My sister loves the KnitPicks Gloss that I chose for her stole, I’m so relieved! She has a hard time with many fibers and textures so was trying to choose very carefully. Dad was pretty impressed with the whole Socks for Soldiers concept and relayed a few stories about his Air Force days as a chaplain during the Korean Conflict. I showed him the socks I’m working on and he seemed to want a pair for himself although he’d never come out and ask 😀 so…… adding Dear Dad to the list of sock recipients for the summer’s knitting.
Same sister that I’m making the stole for also requested a somewhat lacey cardigan so thinking that will be a Christmas present. She does so much for others and fights her own physical and emotional battles. We’re closer now than we have been since we were children. I’m happy to be able to do something for her that she finds meaningful.
