My Mom is sort of a cocky knitter sometimes. Now don't get me wrong...I LoVe, love love love love love love LOVE! her beyond doggie words. In fact, she is rarely out of my reach, let alone out of my sight. (I really really really LOVE her!)
In spite of my undying adoration for the most important person in my world, there are times that I just must set her straight. Like this knitting thing. You may not see much of a correlation between knitting and paper, but I assure you there is one, and the one thing I love almost as much as my mom is....yes, you guessed it. PAPER! I'm rather discerning. The BEST paper is obviously knitting patterns that are bought not downloaded.
I had to toss aside an orange, a half-knit hat...drag out the sweater in progress to get to this delicacy. YUM. The yarn's ballband was pretty tasty, too. Please note: I only munched the very end of the pattern. She's knit this sweater a lot. She can wing the part I consumed, I'm sure. Everyone needs a little holiday challenge, right? Keep her humble. That's one of my jobs.
So, while she was running around and screaming at me... (moi?!!!) and cleaning up the mess parts I didn't get to finish eating...
I finished up her oatmeal that she plopped on the chair...
her breakfast was SOOOOOOOO much better than mine was.....and anyway, I got everyone up this morning at 4 for breakfast, so it was past time for my mid-morning snack. And, no. I did NOT toss the bowl on the floor (this time). I didn't break a single thing. (this time)
She kept muttering something about it's a good thing I'm so cute.
I AM pretty cute!
I hope she doesn't forget that.

Freddy. Maybe if you had chewed up the HAT pattern instead of the sweater pattern, I would have discovered before completely finishing the crown of the hat....(that was looking ever-so-wonky, but who was really looking at it....I was reading, too, right?)...that I had cast on the yardage as if it was the stitch count! EEEEEP!!! Now that was a first for even me. I thought I had made every dumb, ridiculous, thoughtless (real mistakes and errors don't fit in this category) mistake possible; Cocky knitter? Moi?
Thanks for keeping me humble.
