Good Things Come in Pairs

And  just to prove it....

Two great yarns for making hats are on sale at Webs from now until the end of May 2012!
A ball of either one would make a wonderfully head-warming hat.

Plymouth Yarn Encore (75% Acrylic 25% Wool) $4.19 for 200 yards

Cascade 220 Superwash (100% Wool) $7.49 for 220 yards

Here are two adorable letters to soldiers from school children:

And...a lovely couple!

That's my son, whose cold winter-long army service on the Hermon started this whole thing. Here he is back on the Hermon (several years after the army) with his lovely fiancee! Yup, my oldest got engaged just before Passover and is getting married at the end of August. Mazel tov!
(And yes, that is a hat I made for him -- NOT army regulation.)

For comparison's sake, this next photo is from way back when, waiting for the right girl to come...

So two's definitely better than one, wouldn't you say?

I just finished my first hat for a soldier. My son has been in Israel for 4.5 years, and now my daughter is making Aliyah next month. She will bring a couple of hats with her.

Congratulations on the pending wedding - though I believe I'm reading this late. For all I know you probably have a grandchild on the way! :-) Thanks for all you do for the IDF.
