I'm taking my youngest DD to the Dr. for a check-up today, so that she can enter into the next grade level, so I guess I'll get to squeeze some knitting time in while in the waiting room. This is where I have been able to get some quality knitting accomplished.
I told DD that she wasn't going to go to school day, because of her appt., & DD told me that it was OK for her to miss school today, because "It's Take Your Child to Work Day". Then, she got this impish grin on her face & said, "I guess this means that I get to stay home with you and do what you do.....play on the computer, cook dinner & Knit!" That sounds like a plan to me!
But seriously....I want to make this into a good day for her and I, after all, she may have to get some of her immunizations updated! She's not to going to be a happy camper. And, I do want to show her that I do more around the house than "play on the computer, cook dinner & knit." So, after her appt., I just might take her for some lunch for some mother & daughter quality time, then, when we get home, I'll show her how to create Power Point slides. I do this for my hubby's work. This ought to give her a little jump-start on the other kids when she gets into the next grade. When I was a kid in school, we took typing class, now days, the kids take "key-boarding" or "applications class" and they learn all about using an office program & different things on the computer. With my luck though, she'll already know about Power Point presentations.
Then, we'll cook her favorite dinner of lemon chicken & rice together, and, oh yeah.....we'll knit together. Maybe she will want to learn how to purl. Yep, sounds like a plan.

It's been awhile since I've knitted socks. It's not that I didn't want to, but I just hadn't seen a pattern and/or yarn...
