Proud Mamma moment.... indulge me!
We now have a qualified ski instructor in the family. Son & heir rang last night to say he had passed his BASI Alpine level one, qualifying him to teach skiing most places in the world except France! The next 6 weeks is preparation for the much more demanding Alpine 2 qualification that he will take at the end of the course.
There is two weeks of snow forcast for the French Alps so he should have plenty of the white stuff to work with.

I have nearly finished the 'cowpat' i.e. Hemlock ring blanket. I have taken some pictures but they are still in the camera! I may do a plainer cast-off than the frill on the original. We shall see!

Congratulations! That is very exciting. I'm so happy for you and for him. He must be having a terrific time -- hopefully he's enjoying the beautiful scenery too. The weather here has been unusually cold. Finally, today, it is back up to about 25F.
