A Boy Who Knits





Oh I just HAD to post this! My 10 year old, who is the most energetic, soccer playing, hill climbing, dirtbike riding, toy gun toteing, all-boy kid I have personally ever laid eyes on, takes time to relax and actually LET me snap these pics! I could not believe he let me get these, because he's usually a little reserved about letting the world know he knits. However... he is getting a bit looser about that rule, and even knows I'm posting this :-) Here he is, knitting himself a pair of slippers.

That's awesome that your son knits, I think it's something more men should do, particularly in this day and age when so much of life allows for instant satisfaction...knitting is a great practice in patience and delayed gratification.

I once roomed at a home of a Britich man who told me that it years ago it was common in Britain for little boys to learn to knit to pass the time when sick.

Love your blog too! I just started my own as well at knittingdreams4u.blogspot.com

You know, I think my posting these pictures is good for him! He is now saying he wants a blog of his own! Hhhhmmm... not sure how I feel about that though, he IS only 10......

Hey there, I hardly ever get on myspace any more and now that you are on blogger too, I thought I'd send you a quick hi, I visited your blog, now visit mine!! Catch you later, either here or myspace.

Great photos! My 8 year-old ds knows how to knit, too, even though he rarely does it, but who knows, maybe he'll do it more often as he gets older.
