    I finished the knitting part of a sweater for The Drewsk. It is currently in the blocking phase. Sewing it together comes next.

    I want to start a website called Scottish Grandma to exploit the fruits of my mother-in-law’s knitting labor.


    Where’d you learn?

    Sooooo...that's probably already a website. And it probably isn't a sewing website.

    Just hamburgers and hotdogs. Nothing exotic. Still delicious.

    To knit? Yes, my grandmother taught me the basic knit stitch when I was a little girl but I didn't really become a knitter until my early 20s when I took a class at my LYS (local yarn store). I could ONLY do a knit stitch before that class, I didn't know how to cast on or purl.

    Knitting comes with its own lingo - like most professions and avocations. LYS is a local yarn store. When you make a mistake and have to rip back some stitches, it's called either frogging (because you rip it, rip it) or tinking (knit spelled backwards). Your stash is all the yarn you have in your possession that is not part of a project currently on the needles. SABLE is an acronym for Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy and most knitters eventually achieve SABLE. And then there are just the terms for the actual knitting, knit stitch, purl stitch, yarn overs, slipped stitch, short rows, brioche, double knitting, stranded, steeks, intarsia - all these terms, among others, mean something specific to knitters.

    My wife just had a very earnest discussion about the pros and cons of making my in-laws watch So I Married an Axe Murderer next time they're up!

    As it were, my son does have a big head. Maybe not sputnik big, more like orange on a toothpick big.
