Without Permission



Here I am breaking a cardinal rule.....posting a picture on the blog when I was sort of, kind of, jokingly?, told not to. Here is Cara's boyfriend, (there I didnt say he was my son) knitting the Christmas gift scarf. By now, the scarf is easily 14 inches long or so. The yarns he choose would never have been my guess for such a pretty outcome. He's using a kettle dyed brown with a handpaint sock yarn in JETTY. JETTY was a prize yarn from this year in fingering weight, by Spindlecatstudio.etsy.com. I'd describe it as a blend of light grey/blues and yellows. The mix is magical.

In the other shots I took, you can clearly see the clicker for the TV at the ready for channel changing. I suspect tonight the knitting will be set aside as Cara's boyfriend is playing in the high school Battle of the Bands. Well, I can't say he's got his priorities straight yet, but afterall he's young.

What a great scarf. I love that intent look on his face too. Good for him!! I bet he'll rock in the Battle of the Bands just as much as he rocks at knitting!

Cool! Looks like a lovely, warm yarn... I bet she'll be pleased at the work he put into making her gift, too. True love! :)

I was thinking the same thing Vicki wrote. Concentration and determination in those eyes...Cara's lucky to have him for a boyfriend.

I love it. My son wanted to learn to knit. The first thing he made was a bag for his favorite cousin. Cara is a lucky girl.

My son knits too. He made a scarf in pink for his taxi driver's birthday. With 8 mm needles. She was so proud - and lover of pink shades. LOL! I'll share that story one day :-D

Your son is doing very well though
