As the story goes... I am almost finished with Josh's first knuck, when we stop to visit Rich, and I explain that I have forgotten to bring his hat, but will sent it... he exclaims (as he is already wearing a crocheted hat) "...a hat, no, no, I need gloves!!" What is a knitting Mom to do?
Moral of the story is, Men are no different than women, once they see something that one guy has, they want something the same or at least remotely similar - they too are slaves to the lemming mentality. Since Matt got something hand knit from Cheryl, obviously she needs to knit something of equal or greater value/size for me, and oh by the way, I should be next on the list. It really only becomes a problem when they all want the same sort of thing in a plain no nonsense pattern and knit in either BLACK OR GREY!!!!!
Without further ado... Josh's Knucks Rich's plain black gloves are on the needles as I write, and will be followed by Rick's. Then, maybe just then, I can finish Rick's Cardigan (before it gets too warm again), and THEN FOR SURE... I can start knitting for me again... :) won't that be a happy day?
Bless my friends who take pity on me and knit socks for me. They are truly good friends. BTW, anyone else who would be so inclined to knit a pair of women's med/euro size 39 socks in any yarn will be included in that dear friend list too. Yes, I want more hand knit socks, I just seemed to have planted myself into a family of men who like hand knit items - and - I do LOVE MY MEN!!! :)
