Knitting Lessons N E 1?
I make it a habit to sit and knit while I am with the children. They always want to know what I am making, what it looks like now, etc. I think it also gives us a more homey feeling. Like I am just the "mom" sitting and knitting, while the kids are playing.
Well this brought on two things - They all wanted me to knit them something. So I am. I let them choose between a scarf or a hat (both are pretty easy to knit) and I let them choose what yarn they wanted. So these pictures are some of the things I have finished. One scarf for each of the little girls (the pink and purple) the black and white one for one of my 4th grade boys, and the blue hat for my other 4th grade boy. I will post the others as I finish them.
The second thing this brought on was - My two forth grade boys wanted to learn to knit!!! So I taught them! Well... one of them at least. I taught "C" on Vetern's day and he actually learned very quickly! I thought he would be good at it. He really loves it. His mom walked in and her jaw dropped as she said "Is he knitting?" "Wow!" "It looks like he is doing a good job." I told her he was doing a very good job. The other boy "J", also wanted to learn, but let me be kind in saying... Knitting is not his thing. I told him "Some people are good at sports, some people are good at drawing, some people are good at playing video games, but not everybody is good at everything. Maybe knitting is just not your thing" He wanted to try just one more time, but no luck. He couldn't knit a stitch to save his life!
Glen and I went to Watkins Glen this weekend for dinner at Jerlando's (Italian) we had a very good dinner. We also went to walmart, famous brands and last Dunkin Donuts. The Dunkin Donuts there is new and real nice! It is more Cafe' style, different from the others. It has tiled floors, tall tables and chairs, and a little bar you can sit at. It is all nice and clean and pretty. Oh! how could I forget the large flat screen TV!
Books - I finished "The Beans of Egypt Maine" by Carolyn Chute. I thought it was fairly good. It was a fiction story about poverty stricken families of Maine. I felt the story got a little carried away and was more comical because it was so far fetched. But I did enjoy reading it.
My new book is "A Dirty Job" by Christopher Moore is great so far! It is about a man who suddenly gets the power to know when people are going to die by seeing objects they are holding glow. Or is he making them die?
