Knit, Purl, Dribble, Shoot

Today was game day for two of my boys. They both did great, but I have to say, my oldest son was amazing. (I do get to boast here as a mother for a moment don't I?) He didn't play last year so I was way surprised to see him play like he did... especially since he is by far the smallest guy on his team. Look at that jump... and his ball handling. (I know they're crumby pics but are you feeling my enthusiasm? And besides, I'm still struggling with getting a decent photo of yarn on the table... I was thrilled to catch any kind of action with my woefully pathetic camera skills.) I actually don't know much about the game aside from the fact that you want to get the ball in the hoop but I know that he did well because everyone was cheering for him the whole game. I guess I get especially excited because he struggles so much in other areas, like academics... and common sense, that I'm so happy for him when he gets to excel at something. (Thanks for sharing my joy. :)

Of course I had my knitting in hand. I have no hesitation knitting in public, but do you know how hard it is to casually take a picture of yarn on a chair? Maybe it's just me... maybe I don't have the full knit bloggers heart yet... but I must say that I felt, well, just plain old weird!

How fun! I can't wait to have kids and embarrass them by knitting in public - hehe. I already embarrass MY MOTHER when I do that!!!!!!

I knit in public, but I probably would feel weird taking a photo. Glad you did though - that pink is lovely. What is it?

Thanks, the pink is Artyarns Supermerino. It's actually more of a rose color but it has wonderful subtle color variations. I'm really liking it.

Last time I knit at a volleyball gauge got all funky! My hands didn't work so well sitting on bleachers.
Weird huh?
