As my wonderful hubby was getting ready to head out the door to work this morning, my newest pick from the library caught his eye. I chose this in CD format to listen to while working on my own knitting. 😉
He laughed at me and then proceeded to tell his own story about what a book with this title could possibly be about.
“Nancy and Teresa sat opposite from each other, needles clicking furiously, as they raced to be the first ones finished with their booties. Little did they know that Debra down the table from them had brought in her own advantage: she had snuck in her kitten under the table, who was expertly unwinding her ball of yarn with it’s batting paws, giving her the edge the others couldn’t even dream of. While they were eyeing each other’s work, Debra beat them both to the punch. She was the first to finish her bootie!”
Heeheeeehee! But, then when I confessed that last night I found the most wonderful of knitting tools I have ever seen, and couldn’t resist pre-ordering right there on the spot, he rolled his eyes at me. I told him, “No, you don’t understand! It’s like a Leatherman for knitting! Everything is contained in one awesome little package!” Okay folks, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you absolutely need to right now check out Scoutswag‘s newest little knitting hottie: the Knit Kit! Her first batch was sold out in one hour! I can definitely see why.
Anyway…as my hubby was walking out the door, the sounds of his voice lifted in song drifted on the breeze: “Mama, don’t let your babies grow up to be KNITTERS…”
I beg to differ! 😉
