Thank you all for your wonderful, supportive comments on my last post. It really did help to see your remarks – since then, I have put my head down and knitted an entire 3 balls of yarn, and am now only two repeats away from completion! Yay!!!!! If I keep this up, I’ll have something to show you by tomorrow night! So thank you all, again.
At the least, it kept me honest to the task. At the best, it was the knowledge that I wasn’t the only one in my position!
Speaking of talking about it, I’ll leave you with a “non-conversation” I had with the older boy the other day. I think some of you will identify!
As some of you will know, I enjoy looking at magazines, books and Ravelry to spy the latest knitting goodies that I could add to my ever-growing queue of projects. Sometimes, it’s nice to share my happiness at seeing the designs that catch my eye.
So the other day, happily looking through Rowan 46, I spied a number of stylish, chunky man knits.
Me to 15 yr old son: “Ooh, come and look at this. Don’t these sweaters look good?”
Son: [Short silence]. (Then in an irritable tone) “I thought we’ve already discussed it.”
Me: [Puzzled] Discussed what?
Son: [More irritably] “The sweater you’re going to knit me!”
Me: [Confused] “Oh. Yes, I am knitting that, but I just thought I’d show you some other nice man knits!”
Son: [Exasperated snort]. “Not interested!” (Retreats to the kitchen to continue his afternoon snack.)
Me: [Disappointed sigh, looking forlornly at said knits]. You just can’t talk knitting with boys can you?
This is why it’s nice to have you here. At least someone is interested!! 😉
