You Know You Knit Too Much When…

…a conversation like this takes place in your home:

On Saturday, I called all the kids to attention. “Okay, Guys,” I said, “I need everyone to get some shoes on and get ready to go.”

“Where are we going, Mama?” they all asked.

“Mrs. H had her baby,” I said excitedly, ” And we are going to take some dinners to her.”


“Hang on!” I tried to reign them back in. “Mrs. H is real tired and she needs lots of rest, so we are not going to stay very long.”

“How long can we stay?” Noah asked.

“Less than an hour.”

“Can we play a little?”

“Yes,” I replied, “But, we are not staying very long at all. I am not even taking my knitting.”

Stunned silence.  Everyone looked at me like I had grown a second nose. Then my son said incredulously,

You’re not taking your knitting?!? Wow! That will be a short visit!”


But, look! Baby feet:

  1. Hilarious! My husband feels the same way when he sees me leave my knitting bag. He actually asked me once: “Should I be wearing something nicer if you’re not knitting when we get there? Is this a fancy thing?

  2. @ Danielle – That’s funny!!

    Shelly – Thanks for the kind words over at my blog. You may just get me to post something by reminding me that people out there miss me. 🙂 Thanks. I can’t believe I missed your last 3 posts. I am just sooooo ready to have this baby and I am super crabby and full of complaints. I don’t how good the blogging will be when I only want to tell everyone how much I want this to END. (And I keep wanting to cast on new projects.)

    Thanks again!! (I miss you too!!)

  3. wow. see, you really know how to get their attention. such a great thing to have something you love so much. and the baby toes? well, you know those were worth putting down your knitting for!
