Wow--Two In A Week!

A pictorial version 'cause I have to leave in 10 minutes for physical therapy.

This is Barbara. She is my new clothing model (well, the job is new; she's not*). Here she models Ian's sweater before the arms were attached.

And, would you believe it, I actually have another FO? For my sister's birthday (cough--2 months ago--cough). I will have to post later, though. Time to go suffer at the hands of the physical therapist.

*Barbara and I go way back. 25 years back, in fact. She was acquired at Disneyland, Country Bear Jamboree (remember that?). She was named after Barbara Gordon, the Commissioner's daughter on the Batman TV Series. Barbara Gordon was also secretly Batgirl--and my hero!
