Those of you with teenagers understand what a heart break they can be.
Teen DD: I'm bored.
ME: Why don't you knit something.
Teen DD: Knitting is boring, besides it takes too long.
See what I mean....Why dosen't she just shave my eyebrows while I sleep, draw a mustache with permanent ink while I sleep, shave my head or stab me with my needles in the back. These would not hurt as much. I ask myself where did I go wrong. Did they replace her with a changling at the hospital?
Something changed yesterday that made me believe in DNA sharing between mother and daughter. The kids have been on a media fast for the past several days. (Actually it's worked out so well (less fights) ....they may be grounded from TV until Christmas) My teen, without a TV to entertain her, picked up Debbie Stoller's book Stitch n' Bitch Nation and found a pattern.
She has a set of my 16" circulars and some blue yarn and started to knit herself legwarmers.
Sniff Sniff...it makes a mother proud.....
Thank You Debbie Stoller for giving me back my knitter.
Until Next Time
Yours in Yarn,
