We spent the weekend at Sweetie Boy’s soccer tournament in San Bernardino where temps got up to 104. Hot hot hot. They played their hearts out and came in 2nd place. They did a fine, fine job, and we are so proud of Sweetie Boy and his team. Sweetie Boy scored a goal, too! I love watching each boy on that team work hard, develop new skills, and improve, all while having fun. It’s exciting to see it happen just over the course of 4 games in one weekend.
A few of the Moms had mentioned they wanted to learn how to knit, so I told them tournament time was the best for it… lots of sitting around and waiting for our games. I set up about 6 or 7 Moms and daughters/sisters with their Plymouth Encore and size 9 needles. Based on Fay Lynn’s wonderful advice, I cast on for each of them and showed them the knit stitch. As expected, some took to it more quickly than others, but everybody did a wonderful job. They learned their little rhyme, again big thanks to Fay Lynn:
In through the front door / Run around the back / Peek through the window /
Off jumps jack
This is my lovely friend, Sandy. Sandy learned to knit as a child, and after I showed her once, she took to it, like a fish to water. Nice, beautiful, even stitches. Well done!
Fay Lynn said I was brave to do a knitting workshop at a soccer tourney. Surprised to hear it called that, I told her I didn’t think of it as a workshop. I was simply showing a few friends how to knit. They also worked hard, developed new skills and improved. Some of the boys expressed interest in wanting to learn to knit also. I’m game! But let’s not call it anything, especially not a workshop.
