The hardest part was telling him that he probably won't want to tell the kids at school that he's knitting. They'd tease him and teasing was part of the problem today. Sheldon's photo was a godsend! I really think knitting can be a useful tool for him, it will work with his OCD tendencies w/o being something that is detrimental. Thanks for the caring comment.
Happiness is catching that dropped stitch while it's still fixable..
