GIRLIE TIME (plus one small boy)

It all happened rather spontaneously the other morning.

Tina had dropped Sally round to our place, so we could go through some old photos, and compare memories. She stopped for a coffee, and then Kim arrived with William, so I could mind him for the morning.
Now Tina and Kim have been inspired by Sally's knitting. Over the past few years Sally has produced lots of rugs out of feathery wool for her children, grandchildren and even their pets. They agreed they would like to start on some projects of their own.

Next thing, while we were all discussing things like needles, patterns and wool, I went off and found lots of bits and pieces of yarn in my stash. And next thing we were all getting quite chatty and excited the way girls usually do over things like colour and fabric and needlework.

Bernie walked by a couple of times, and the look on his face can most charitably be described as 'puzzled.' It was a look, accompanied by something between a sigh and a sniff, that said "how on earth could we get so worked up about things like that, and surely we had better things to do?"
But William had great fun. Hopefully he will grow up to be a SNAG (Sensitive New Age Guy)

The time really passed so quickly, but it was fun while it lasted!

My collection of "Big Buttons" - must get William onto playing with them and sorting through them.

Hope you have more success teaching Kim to knit than I did, she starts off o.k then loses interest, she did start some booties while carrying William but they never got finished.
