We need more yarn.
What, oh what have I done?
I have three sons OBSESSED with knitting. They are even immersed in the language, discussing dropped stitches, increases and decreases (all unintentional), purling, accusing one another of making their stitches too tight. Wise observations are made: if you have bigger needles, you can get a lot more done. If your yarn is not soft enough it makes you itch and doesn’t feel good.
Is the craft store open on New Year’s Day? I call and get only an uninformative recording. We drive over with much anticipation. YES! It is open and we are the only customers. We get more yarn. Projects can progress.
My nine year old son spends the day alternating between knitting, visiting with cousins, reading his Alex Rider book, and listening and singing along with Jesus Christ Superstar.
