Wow. That's a handful of loving challenges and opportunities you have there. You are an amazing family! Whatever your grandson who knits decides to do with it, I certainly wish him the very best. The very best for you, too. You are one special lady.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
