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?
