My son and I were knitting together last night and it was getting late so I said to him "time to get ready for bed" and he said "just one more row"

My heart was so full of love and pride I almost cried. :heart: My baby is a knitter!!!!! :cheering:

*sniff* He's so grown up now.

Although, now he can use it for an excuse for other things...

Please take out the garbage...just one more row.

Please make your bed...just one more row.

Please put away your laundry...just one more row. Which will REALLY become a problem if he ever makes a horizontal scarf with 300 bazillion stitches. ;)

That's so great that y'all can share that! I love to see guys getting into crafts also. Last week I ran into a male coworker I don't often see, and he had a girl's poncho on four DPNs, and it looked good! I complimented him on it, and he said it's for his 10-year-old daughter.

That is so cute!!! :cheering: Good on you for teaching him. I've been contemplating teaching my 5 year old but I'm not sure he'd catch on just yet. So I've been focussing on teaching DH instead. LOL

Well done! It's so cool you have something you can do together.

Congrats, FemMama! My son is learning to knit, too, and it's wonderful to see other boys knitting. It's fabulous for their handwriting and hand/eye coordination.

Today I was in a LYS and a couple walked in. The lady was hugely pregnant, and the guy was poking around the store. Turns out, HE'S the knitter! It was so cool. He even tried a hat on my little girl to check out the fit. We talked about soakers, longies and cloth diapering. The saleslady was fascinated. It was great.

How lucky you are! I've tried to convince my 12 year old daughter to knit but she says it's "too girly". :? So I taught a couple of my daycare children to knit. One of them got so into it I gave him needles, yarn and a knitting book for xmas. His dad wasn't real pleased but the boy's mom told the dad to keep his mouth shut about it. I was like :cheering:.

Kvelling is something we do here all the time- its a Yiddish word for having great happiness and pride in someone else's accomplishments. :D

My 22yod is coming home for a visit from Germany next month. She'll be here for nearly 3 weeks, and I've tried to convince her to let me teach her to knit while she's home. She's been less than enthusiastic (tho she does enjoy crocheting, which she taught herself). She finally acquiesced to let me teach her. I just know I can get her hooked if I try hard enough. :mrgreen:

You know this bracelet is cool but I have a looooooong story about this shop. It is down the street from me. I don't go there anymore. :crying:
