Connor knitted a Christmas Present ….

This year Connor knitted Isabelle a pair of socks.  All by himself, off his own bat, without any suggestion, motivation, cajoling from any of us – for the record he is 10 (he has just turned 11, but he made the socks when he was 10).

On Christmas morning there under the tree was a gift for Isabelle.  Hand knitted socks all wrapped up – Connor’s handiwork.

What is even cuter is that Isabelle wears them – granted like a German tourist – sometimes with the shoes swapped over on the wrong feet –  but there we go.

I really wonder where we got Connor from – he is just so damn sweet, endearing and has a heart of gold.  I am not sure what recipe we used to get him, but he is definitely such a sweet boy.

  2. Wow, I’m impressed. Your son made those? I can’t even knit a sad little scarf. What a sweet boy.

    Um, Celeste – do you know there it’s an advert on this page with semi naked girls for something called “mFlirt – hot girls looking for real men in your area”?

      No, but some people have showed me when they search for my site on their mobile phones that there are a few adverts on the site that I did not put there.
