Christmas gift from the wife!
« on: December 26, 2017, 03:01:26 PM »
My very clever wife got me a rather unique Bridgestone gift this year.  She took a picture of me holding a BS sign at Barber last year and cropped it so that only (mostly) the sign shows.  She send it off to Shutterfly and they put it on a new cell phone case.  It doesn't feel like it's on top of the case but looks/feels like it's molded in somehow.  Oh yeah, and she also got me an electronic ignition for my 350 project. 

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and hoping for a Happy New Year!

Funny you should say that.  My wife is an awesome knitter and each year she makes me a pair of hand knit socks for Christmas.  She sources the yarn from independent dyers all over the world and these socks are the most comfortable and warmest socks ever.  She's been doing this for so long now that I'd be disappointed if I didn't get a pair each Christmas...and this year I received two pair!

She says "sure"!...as long as you include a copy of the pattern with the yarn. 

I'm not sure if you've ever seen a knitters pattern but it looks like gibberish in a foreign language from another planet.

            She's a good'un, give her my thanks  :)............ Ball of 'steel wool' in the post and surprise, surprise, you can buy 'aluminium wool' here :-
            https://www.americanelements.com/aluminum-wool-7429-90-5

            Pattern might take a little longer  ;D, yes, I have seen them before, my mother used to knit way back. Have you ever had knitted wool swimming trunks ( I kid you not), like a lead suit when wet  :D ;D >:(. Not one of her best projects!

       Best wishes to all for a happy, healthy and sucessful new year, with plenty of BS saddle time.
            Brian.

Brian,

My wife is just a giggling.

Wool swim trunks don't seem like a good idea.  Once wet, I bet they were hard to keep on!

Thanks for the well wishes and Happy New Year to all!
