Sometimes it's great to be a fly on the wall. My teenager likes to use Facebook to keep in touch with his friends. Since he has played select/elite travel hockey for the last 5 seasons, and changed schools this year, his friends are truly scattered far and wide. So, he loves Facebook for keeping up with everyone. Being the good nosy mother I am, I pop onto his page from time to time just to keep an eye on things. One day I stumbled upon a conversation he was having with a hockey buddy. It went something like this...
Friend: Dude, remember those sick hats your mom made for us a couple years ago?
My kid: yeah
Friend: Do you think she would consider making me another one?
My kid: Probably. I'll ask.
I ask you..... What do you do when a 15 year old boy asks if you will knit him a hat? You make him a hat!!!
After a little back and forth, we decided on a new hat in his high school colors with an E on the back, because that is the other logo his school uses and he didn't know what his jersey number would be.
This is a personal pattern. My friend Kelly started it and I modified it a bit to make a little more sense to me. I really should write it up, if for no other reason than to avoid the ripping and re-knitting I did tweaking it!
