Dear friends that knit,
Note that perhaps I've been knitting a bit too much lately (especially since I'm so bad at it!), so take this with a grain of salt -
Do you knit when you're with your 2 year old son and he's looking for his dinner?
Do you knit when you're mostly in the dark sitting in the passenger seat waiting 45 min in a line of cars trying to view holiday lights?
Do you knit when you're talking on the phone with your girlfriends about heated topics?
Do you knit when you're watching foreign films with subtitles?
Perhaps all of the above are bad ideas, but I have scientific proof - at least in my case - that these activities lead to 1 unsightly thing:
Yes, I'm talking holes in this hat that you could run your index finger through! Holes that will show up when you put said hat on your head!
I think the topic for my knit lesson next week will be "how to pick up dropped stitches".
Or perhaps "don't panic, buy a crochet hook."
In any case....to those of you who knit, and you know who you are...my hat is off to you and the beautiful work you do.
In truth I don't really need to take my hat off after all, it already has plenty of holes!!
