Last night the Captain called and said he wants to learn knitting. At first I thought I had accidentally dropped peyote or licked the wallpaper in a lead-based shanty but nope, it was not a dream, the man wants to learn to make a scarf!
I got super excited. “I CAN TEACH YOU THAT!!” I hollered. “I AM THE KNIT STITCH.”
Perhaps it is because I have talked about knitting so much (and been agonizing over making the. perfect. cozy. sock. pattern) and I show him all my treasures and make him hats and wax rhapsodic over the rare Noro colorway I found from an Etsy shop in Germany. Or maybe it’s that I have started not-so-secretly fantasizing about taking a trip to Japan to visit the Noro yarn factory. Whatever it is, it must be contagious because as soon as he is back from his business trip I am teaching that man how to cast on and knit!
