The Promised Models and More

The day our Thanksgiving week started, we had to do a little “home training” with the pupmonsters.  They had to have a place to be that wasn’t in the vicinity of “hobbits”. They are not quite used to the quick movement of little ones and like to spring into action which terrorizes our grandsons (and sometimes our granddaughter) and scares me that the dogs could really hurt them.  So… the bed and breakfast is born.

Knitting Models:

We had one reluctant “no way” model and two enthusiastic ones.  Justin was having none of the modeling, but Jacob decided he might just claim both Spiderman and Elmo sweaters and was the perfect little model of both. Sarah was – as always- the modeling diva. Be right backClick on the photos for a larger view.

Ladies first….Sarah in her Star of My Heart dress.

And what model doesn’t spend a little time in front of a mirror?

The reluctant model, Justin.  Likes the sweater OK…but please….it was 80 degrees outside and he was not about to put it on.

Jacob, on the other hand was happy to model both sweaters.  I think the pictures tell the story.

Now, did I mention – “More” in the subject line.  Well…here it is.

I gave our Darling DIL a shawl that I had originally knitted for me, but never wore.  I would put it on and it wouldn’t ever look quite right and I would think, “I should give this shawl to Linda.  It would be perfect for her”. But, before I could get pictures of her in the shawl, her darling husband, Jason (yes, this is our son) and his father (my darling husband, David) had some fun of their own.

Here is the beautiful Linda modeling the shawl that is indeed perfect for her if I do say so myself (although Jason looks pretty darn good, too)Winking smileIn the second photo, she’s showing off some new bling.

Your work is gerogeous. The models are excellent. Yes, they should get to keep what they wear. I think your son did a great job.

You are too funny...loved the "who wore it best" section. I have to say that and Jason really "worked it", so he should win hands down!! Loved the pictures...love the knitting...loved being with you both.
