Chickens by mojo! Great idea. I didn't recall them. I think he'll like them. Thanks!
I wasn't really sure how he felt about having knitting more or less imposed on him today, it just seemed like a good idea at the time. I then heard him on the phone with his mom when he told her he learned to knit and the pride in his voice was obvious. He came back to work on it some more and didn't mind that the needles I gave him were pink.
He made sure he took his knitting bag with him. All I had for him to use was a plastic bag from the store but his needles and things went into an old check box I'd saved. I know it was an old box, I've not had new checks in over 4 yrs!
