This is Mark in his new hat. Handsome fellow, eh? I think he looks dashing in his new toque. Of course, in his e-mail to me, he said that it is only about 50 degrees in his area, so not quite cold enough to wear a nice warm toque.
My other friends who recieved knitted goodies from me haven't sent me any pictures, but when they do, I'll post them.
