Look at me! I am knitting!
It's pretty remarkable really, as my biggest knitting achievement to date is a fuzzy pink scarf and cloche set. I got the urge to make something useful, so I went down to Spotlight on Monday and picked up a pattern, needles and wool to make a sweater for Josh. He was very excited, though the novelty is wearing off for him, since he's realised it's not an intant gratification thing.
The first day, as I cast on the required stitches he perched beside me with a perky "Are you making my jumper now?" After two days of "Is my jumper ready yet?" he's beginning to lose interest. Though I have noticed that he is less disruptive when it comes to me working on a project destined for him. Maybe he figures that if he's quiet it will happen quicker.
Poor child doesn't realise that I know my own attention span too well, and I daren't take on a knitting project that's larger than my smallest child!
