Knitting with my sister
Two Saturdays ago I visited my sister for an afternoon just to hang out and let the boys play. I’m trying to keep low-key, but I’m really excited that Karen is learning to knit. I don’t want to scare her off, but I want her to love it like I do. It’s something for us to share.
She got some needles and yarn for Christmas, but had forgotten how to cast on. So, I came for a visit armed with my knitting project and the book Stitch and Bitch to leave for a while as a reference (if she wanted it). We got her scarf cast on and she got quite a bit of knitting done while I worked on my socks. I also got the joy of a schnauzer nestled up against my leg; I miss that! Shadow thinks everyone who looks at him is inviting him to their lap.
We had such a nice, laid back afternoon!
