Eldest is rather unimpressed by my creative outbursts. The hat is useful, it is the only one around, so he wears it. Scarf, similar story. The purple school vest, well, it is school color purple. Daddy's Blue Cable Sweater? Well, that is kinda cool, it has a cable. Everything he saw after that with a cable, "Mommy! You can do that!" Why yes, Mommy can.
So, Mommy, wanting to please her man-child, lets him pick out the yarn and sets to making him another vest-- with a cable (ok, basic braid, but let's not split yarns, ok?) He is anxious, he wants it to be done in time for Easter. No problem. Mommy quit working on her cardigan to get his vest done.
I excitedly show him the progress this morning. I only need to do the neck ribbing!
You know what he says?
He wore the one sock around all afternoon.
I will distract myself with a knit along.
