Let's Help Stephen Hawking....
First of all I'm showing you Al's new hat. She whipped it up to match her cute new coat. Also she is knitting this little cabled ditty for a friend with whom she works. I asked where she got the pattern....she made it up. In high school she took a test that said her career should be either: A dock supervisor or an astrophysicist.........which leads me to today's topic....
turns out, you know, she's an ER nurse which means she is both dock supervisor and astrophysicist.
About 2 posts ago I was going on about how smart the NASA people are and I can't even work a lace pattern.
Well today I read that brilliant minded Stephen Hawking cannot figure out: WOMEN.
Let's help him. I'm not all women, but I am one woman and this I know:
*if we say we want yarn for our birthday, anniversary or holiday gifts, buy us that yarn.
*If we say we need to stop at a yarn shop in a town we are vacationing in, then we do need to stop there. And go in. And buy something. usually.
*if we say we need yarn, then it doesn't matter how much stash we have. And leftovers from previous projects do not amount to stash for me. They are leftovers.
*If we are knitting on a deadline, and we want a bowl of cereal for dinner, we want you to have a bowl for your dinner too.
*If we are overjoyed with our knit up one day and crying and frogging it the next, we have good reason. You can bring me a glass of white wine or champagne and it will be very much appreciated. It will get you very very far....
*If we knit something just for you and you appreciate it, we love you all the more.
*if I want to sit next to you and knit while you watch wrestling or hockey or football or the Tour de France, know that you are indeed about the best guy in the world to me.
(any additions Ladies?)
