    When was seventeen, I decided I wanted to learn how to knit. I looked up directions online, got really excited, and ran downstairs to find my mother and inform her of my plans.

    She looked at me, sighed, and said, 'Why can't you go out and get drunk, like a normal seventeen year old?'

    I'm still yarn obsessed.

Dan’s yarn joke.

It’s Sunday morning.  I’ve finally picked up my February Lady Sweater, to start the second sleeve.  It’s currently on some scrap cotton yarn, and I was gently pulling the yarn out and picking up the stitches.  I turned to put the scrap cotton on the side table, and instead dropped it in my glass of water.

So I cursed, and picked it out.

Dan, standing in the kitchen, asked what I said.  “I dropped my yarn in my water,” I replied.

To which he said: “That’s silly.  The only dropping that should happen in yarn is dropped stitches.  LOOK! I made a knitting joke!”

  1. That he knows you drop stitches deserves a pat on the back that he turned it into a joke. . . give that man a Klondike Bar.

  2. Wow- that’s funny.

    Ben gets really proud of himself if he makes some sort of yarn reference. Sometimes he just walks around asking me if I’m going to purl.
