knit at nite

some entries about knitting and family to keep myself motivated at projects and the daily grin, i mean grind.


man knitting sighting - once removed

there is a cute teacher at wesley school in middletown. today i spotted her sporting a martha poncho. i asked her, "is that a martha poncho you have on?". "yes" was the reply. some follow up conversation revealed that it was crocheted, not knit. she was not the crafter, a relative was. when encouraged to share with said relative (referred to by me as she/her) that the poncho was both recognized and admired by a fellow knitter, she corrected me, divulging that a male relative had made it. she went on to describe how he arrived with a giant hefty filled with ponchos at a family gathering. he knit enough ponchos for all the female relatives: sisters, nieces et. al. isn't that cute?

how's that for some gift crafting inspiration.

Always cool to hear of men knitting. My 4yo son is begging me to teach due time.
My daughter attends Wesley school~how weird is that? For some reason I thought you were out towards the Avon way.
(I know we've never met, but I go to Newington S&B when I can on Wednesdays and I've been on the Hartford area and Newington lists for awhile. I should be able to go tomorrow, hopefully!)
