Things I Have Learned From My Son:
1. Knitting involves two needles and a ball of yarn. That is three things. People only have two hands.
2. There are only two stitches in knitting: the knit stitch and the I'm-not-gonna-do-that-one stitch.
3. Pot holders are not real projects.
4. Ditto scarves.
5. The only yarn worth knitting costs $20 a ball and will end up tangled up with a yo-yo, a Rescue Hero, and a Lego X-wing Fighter.
6. If your child is a perfectionist, you might want to consider teaching him something with a greater margin for error--like brain surgery.
7. Dogs don't like being poked with knitting needles.
8. Neither do siblings.
9. Knitting with five needles looks way more exciting than knitting with two needles. (Note: That way lies madness.)
10. There is a knitting fairy who stops by every night after you go to sleep to fix all your mistakes.
