The Kids Are Knitting

In a last minute attempt to not miss the entry deadline, again, the entry forms are printed, the trip to town (to drop them off) is planned, and the knitting is underway- 3 kids, 3 skeins of 'kitchen cotton', 3 sets of needles, and 3 soon-to-be washcloths destined for the County Fair. The fun is in the air now, let me tell you...

My 10, 8, & 6 yr olds are all currently giving me yet another cause to beam with parental pride. Ribbons or no ribbins, I just love to see them knitting!

Kid Funny-
Overheard this morning-
10 yr old son- "I think I'll keep knitting when I'm an adult. I could even teach my wife."
8 yr old daughter- "What if she already knows how?"
10 yr old son- "That will save me a few minutes."

Now that he's got that all figured out...

Happy knitting-

How wonderful! Ribbon or not, it will likely be a lifelong passion.

That's awesome! If my husband could have taught me to knit it would have saved us both a few minutes! :-)

oH my I have tears in my eyes ... he may make it a prerequisite for a perspective wife-to-be; "Must be a Knitter."

A happy couple should knit together.
