That is what I am knitting. Actually 2 of them! One for my son and one for his fiancee.
No really! Here are the pictures.
One for him.
One for her.
It is an actual pattern.
I don't make this stuff up!
I knew when I began this project using the unpleasant, cheap, squeaky acrylic yarn that made my hands hurt because it wouldn't give on the needles, ... I knew I had to do something different with the second one. Yes ... female. Easier to add some bows and a ruffle, than to add gonads.
And when I showed this pattern to the folks in my knitting group ... some said "cool".
While I was on knitting break did the martian pods come down to earth from outer space and inhabit every one's brains? Or was everyone just so happy to see me knitting again. They would have said "cool" to anything I knitted.
(You wanted to see the stitches up close, right?)
For years I have waited for my son to say,
"Mom, can you make me a sweater, or a pair of socks, or a scarf."
Years, I tell you.
And when he finally forms the words in his mouth ...
"Mom, can you make me a ..."
He finishes the sentence with ...
Do you think this is a test? Do you think I passed?
If anyone out there responds "cool," I will know just how far the martians have invaded my world!
I wonder what he will ask for next.
