Nate came home early today, and caught me knitting Jessie's mittens. He looked over and asked what I was making, this conversation ensued:
"I'm making Jess some mittens."
"But, doesn't Jess HATE mittens?"
"Well, Yes, but I--"
"If Jess hates them, then why are you bothering to make them?"
The truth? I don't know, I guess I secretly hoped that I could convert her on this. He's right though. With all I have left to finish, why am I wasting my time on something Jess will hate? I frogged what I had done. It was much really, just a cuff and the base of the thumb. I think instead I'll pick up some stitches off the cuff of her gloves and make an I-cord, so they will be dummy gloves.
Although, when Jessie got off the bus today, she did ask me to make her a new hat. Her current bucket-style hat doesn't quite fit anymore. Now, if she could just pick a color and stick with it.
I plan to meet Tara and Sue, and I don't know who else, for "stitches at Noon" at Valpo University tomorrow. Tara and Sue both work there. I don't exactly know where I'm going, so Tara's to meet me so I don't get lost.
