Today, in honour of Veterans' Day, I stayed inside and worked on a design for one of those snazzy envelope hats that you see them wear in pictures. (mine is loaded with cables..can't leave well enough alone.) I was working on my speed knitting technique, and going at a pretty decent clip... I looked up to see a woman about 5-10 years older than myself watching me knit...She shook her head and said,
"I've never seen a boy knit so fast before!"
I said, "How old were the male children you've watched knit?"
I mean, I AM 41! Young man, perhaps, but hardly a boy...
Thanks be to all Vets who have served. You have my respect and appreciation.
