Is he doing tvandstickning also?

Asplund's picture

No, he's practising garter stitch - planning to make a sweater! In my opinion, it's more likely to be a scarf, but I just couldn't tell him that as it would sound so discouraging. He'll probably figure in out himself, anyway.

That is the perfect MWK photo. Thanks for putting it out here.

I'm about to teach a woman here at work to knit, and it's very satisfying that I can pass on my knowledge and experience...but no where near as satisfying as watching you two knit.

I love how comfortable he looks with it.

If MWK had a featured photo on the home page like Yahoo groups do - this is the photo I'd want sitting out there....

MMario - ambiguity is cultivated, it doesn't happen in a vacuum!

Ha! That would be a nice addition to my cv: MWK figurehead! Seriously, I'm honoured and flattered!

You got to love his ambition to make a sweater....I can't even think about tackling a sweater. Yet, kids are young and then can think they do anything. Good to see he is knitting!!!

Your son is very lucky! And I'd say that you must have been a lucky kid too. I had a very supportive mother, but dad was mostly unfomfortable with my unconventional interests. So, kudos to you for being a good dad.

Asplund's picture

Oh, he's not my son but a friend's - Joakim's dad doesn't mind at all, fortunately. (He actually knitted himself a sweater as a teenager!) I consider myself lucky to know a child who's eager to learn how to knit.
