A new book, mug and something special

The Art of Fair Isle Knitting by Ann Feitelson is my new book. It's been around for a few years but it's new to me.
Then there is this mug that DH got for me. It's beautiful. I love it!
Now for something special and very dear to my heart ~ the scarf my son knit for me. I can't even remember the name of the thick -n-thin yarn I picked but it took 2 skeins.
Not only did he hold one needle under his left arm and knit it continental style (the way I taught him), he remembered how to cast on with the long-tail method. His tension was loose but even. When he was near the end of the first skein, he came to me as asked how to add the next skein. I showed him and he left to do that.
He finished knitting it and asked how to cast off. I showed him and he left to complete the scarf. The next morning, he proudly presented the scarf to me.
It's beautiful.
It's warm.
It's perfect.
I can't even find the ends he weaved in.
What's more amazing is he hadn't touched a knitting needle five years before this project. He just picked it up as if he had always been knitting.
