Starting a new career at Eighty is not for the faint at heart!  Introducing Dad!

Starting a new career at Eighty is not for the faint at heart! Introducing Dad!

My son, his partner and my Dad came over for dinner this evening.

And no this is not the start of a funny joke – even though it sounds like one.

I asked my son or his partner if one of them would model my new toque – The HitSuJi Helmet! Imagine my surprise when my Dad said that he would like to model for me!
Introducing my father, at the start of his new career as male model!

“If I had know how easy it was to get into the business I would have tried it years ago!”

We learn something new about our family every day!

Happy Knitting


PS the helmet was knit using one ball of Hitsuji by Noro!
