does that come in a nice blue?

My eight year old nephew asked about my knitting yesterday. "What are you making? How do you do it? Will you show me how, so I can make some socks for my Mom?"

He's curious to know how things work and to try new things - things like knitting. And I can see why he's interested ... it's a kind of magic, turning yarn into cloth! Maybe he'd like to make a scarf ... simple knit stitches, no shaping and gauge doesn't matter.

Yesterday wasn't the day for knitting lessons - we went to the splash park to get outside, run around and get some relief from the heat and humidity. But maybe next time he's over! And because he asked so politely, I could probably get some yarn in a nice blue...
