Had a great time with the family at Easter, and got a wonderful surprise. My 76-year-old dad brought out some socks he had just finished and showed them off. He also had some hats and a scarf that he had made. Mom says he's been knitting up a storm and really enjoying it.
It all started at Christmas. I was wearing a wool watch cap I had made and dad was admiring it. He started asking me if I could make him one like it, but mom poked him in the ribs and said, "You could make one yourself."
I had made the hat on a knitting loom, so dad went out and bought a set of looms and has been knitting up a storm ever since. I guess I have a convert on my hands. :-)
