Franklin's shawl project go look now. The level of planning, the hundreds of thousands of stitches, the detail of the work involved, for someone who also has a day job and worked on this while commuting - the outpouring of love for his niece just blows me away. He has truly created an heirloom piece and it is breathtakingly lovely and breathtakingly full of love. Abigail is a blessed child to have Franklin for her uncle.
And to think I'm proud when I finish a sock. And I still haven't knitted my granddog a sweater, though now he won't need one for three more years. I am quite comfy here on the knitting short bus, it's air conditioned and everything, but I do worship true genius when I see it.
