All Tied Up

I am addicted to reading, when I’m sitting with a good book I get nothing accomplished.  No knitting, no cleaning, no blogging, eating even drops down the list of priorities.  That is my excuse this week I found not only a fun book but a fun series, so there have been many days of just reading.

After about 10 minutes of assuring them it is just a girl thing, and that they are totally able to do this and their mom’s will love it, they dug in deep and went for it.  There was a variety of successes, all the boys had looks of concern when they realized the process make them look like they were wearing sparkly hand cuffs.  We have three boys, luckily, any more and I would have needed another set of teaching hands.  I was very proud of them for giving it a try, one even wanted the extra skein so that he could make one for his grandma at home.  Yep I pass on my addictions where ever I go.
