"Ron" - Ronald Reagan Latch-Hook

I finally completed manufacturing Ron.

I was absolutely stunned last year (2007) at xmas when flastron and beninem stopped by my parents' house and I opened the unassuming cardboard box containing a nearly-complete Ron and the yarn and instructions to complete it. I knew that flastron had been working on it, but I had somehow underestimated his incomprehensible dedication and work ethic, or perhaps overestimated his practicality. Either way, I was speechless.

(I was going to say nonplussed, but no one knows what that means anymore.)

The only reason it took me so long to finish, other than all the classes I took last year, is that I have been working on a friend for Mao and Ron, who will complete the Triumvirate Triptych. I stopped only because I ran out of the exact shade of black yarn I needed and had to order more online. I hope to have their friend done soon as well.
