Knitting, Fishing, and Us




At our small town's summer rec. program, I teach knitting twice a week. Whatever kids want to learn that day are shown how , and the ones who already know how, just knit on whatever they want to that day. Well, today Lil' Diva went fishing with the summer rec. kids, while I knitted with some other ones. It was her first time fishing, and she caught a fish! We brought it home, cleaned it, and made some lunch. She took a tiny bite, and said "You eat it. It's yucky." So, I had some perch. She sure doesn't look very diva-ish holding that fishhead, does she?

While we were knitting and fishing; my boys, 13 yr. old MusicMan, and 16yr. old SkaterPunk went to the library TOGETHER! That's a big deal. I love it when they sort-of hang out together. I hope when they grow up they're friends. MM is called that because he's really into the real rock: like The Who and Styx, and lots more. When he was really tiny he was obsessed with the Beatles, and he still likes them a lot. SP would probably be really mad if he knew I call him that. He's into the music thing, too, thanks to their dad, but he skateboards really well, so he's SP.

This has been a lot about stuff and a little about knitting! I am going to go knit on my Jaywalker socks now. I've been knitting them forever. I keep setting them aside, and knitting stuff for other people. I will finish them and then wear them SOON. I'll show y'all a picture when they're done. I'm also going to add some links and fun stuff to this blog as soon as I figure out how!

It's nice of you to teach knitting to the kids! That's something they'll have their whole lives.

I can't wait to see the Jaywalkers--I have YET to knit a pair.

I think I'll try responding to comments here, in the comments. I also check out the links to commenters.

Zippianna..Thanks LD was so proud of that fish! I forgot to take a pic of the whole thing!

del..I'm glad you like my blog. I like yours too. I think I might have to link to that list you made for your kids. I think all parents will relate to it. Jaywalker pics to come!

mmm fish heads.
It's cool that you're teaching knitting in the rec program. Ours doesn't do anything like that.
