Well, I never thought it would happen. But. I taught Chris how to knit SOCKS!!! YAY! He wasn't a fan at first. I though the was going to give up. But alas, he didn't. I was so excited! I sat down beside him on the couch and helped him clear up some pattern issues and then hopped up on my merry way, completely stoked that I had successfully converted him to sock knitting.

A GASP from the other room. What could it be? I run in to find out...and see him sitting there looking distressed. "Someone broke my needle!" There he sat, afraid to move, one DPN snapped right in half, little tiny loops just waiting to fall off the needle. I quickly ran over with another needle and swiftly grabbed the little loops mid air and got them safely onto another DPN.

It had to be the kids. The kids were clearly messing around, jumped on the couch, and SAT on his needle.

I guess my face had the "deer in the headlights" look. He looked at me and shook his head. "You sat on my knitting didn't you?"

I didn't know. Who sits their WIP on the couch anyway? (me, well and Chris too obviously) Who doesn't look where they are sitting? (me) Who could sit on someone's SIP and not realize they had snapped their DPN in half? (apparently me)

Stop laughing Pam. Its so not funny.

Ok maybe it is.

Oh yeah....check out this Etsy shop. Wonder what my announcement could be?
