Lynn knitted the pictured hat (on the head of my beloved when he was merely a slip of a lad) for Christian in the hopes that he wouldn't pull off the bobbles. Apparently, he didn't, as the hat still looks exactly as it does in this picture and has lost none of its bobblyness. Apparently, it won a prize at the local grange because it RULES.
Look at this kid. Is he not the sweetest little chap? Makes me wonder what our kids would have looked like, if we had decided to have any. Big eyes, definitely. Huh, now I'm all sentimental. Dammit.
