Wow!! You guys are great!! Check out all the comments for FA in PA! Who here things she needs a blog of her own?!! Boy, the stories she could tell — perhaps it’s best if she remains silent ….
The news from these parts – Daughter #2 is knitting!
When Daughter #2 was little she learned how to knit. She was a good knitter. But soon other things caught her attention.
Last summer while with me on a trip to AC Moore, D#2 wanted to buy some yarn to make her friend a scarf. I was very excited and began imagining cozy, mother/daughter afternoons.
Hope was premature. That yarn soon made its way into the stash pile.
Well, my long wait is over. Just yesterday, Daughter #2 decided to take the plunge. It was the seventh day of her summer vacation and she was bored already.
She is about three inches into a garter stitch scarf! I will try to get a picture up soon. Do you think it is too soon to start imagining those cozy afternoons again? To take her shopping for knitting bags? To discuss future projects?
Shall I play it cool, or do I swamp her with my enthusiasm?
Is cool even a possibility?
FAinPA feels as if she already blogs -albeit vicariously – through our one and only Purling Swine.
Yay! Hope she keeps it up. I’m seeing lots of nice Hallmark moments in your future. ;-)
(So sue me! I’m feeling snarky today! MWAH!)
Oh, I’m never very good at playing it cool when the girls pick up needles and yarn — I always blow it! And my girls, I’m learning, are definitely NOT process, zen knitters, it’s eye-on-the-prize all the way!
Happened to find your blog while doing a sock search. Love your socks with Knitpicks yarn. What pattern did you use for it?
smother her with the knitting love
this is my first visit to your site. i love the ‘would it kill ya to comment?’ button. where did you get that?
Definitely play it cool, but leave irresistible yarn and trendy patterns laying around casually. I have not had any success at indoctrinating my daughter or niece into the Cult of Knitting!
