For the past several weeks I've been teaching Marianna how to knit while Len takes Joe and Becca to their violin lesson. We've worked through some sample rows and have now started knitting a small purse from a birthday kit.
Yesterday the girls and I walked to the yarn store during tae kwon do. I needed to check the stock of double pointed needles, and the girls wanted to see the pretty yarn. Soon Marianna was asking to buy something beautiful. I reminded her that she's working on a project right now and doesn't even know what she'll make next.
Her response? No problem: "I'll buy it now and think of what to make with it later."
This must be why I keep reading about knitters swamped by their stashes. =)
