Action-packed Father's Day Weekend

Not really, well, kinda.
My mom went into Atrial Fibrillation out of nowhere early Friday morning, so I rushed back to my hometown about 6 hours earlier than planned. She is fine now, but had us scared for awhile.
I did get a lot of public knitting done in the ICU and waiting rooms.
I visited my grandmother in the nursing home today. The grandmother who taught me to crochet.
I showed her the shawl I was working on.

Joining yarn with a knot

Have any of you guys used this knot?? I usually use the spit join but am knitting a shawl with Madelinetosh superwash merino and it doesn't felt. My sister-in-law sent me the link.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day goes out to all the happy knitters who have kids for whom they have so feverishly knitting everything from hats down to socks. Our kids are so wonderful to accept...and even wear...all our "creative" garments. As fathers, we have broken the mold of what standard dads do with and for our kids. We've added the art of knitting.
