Conversation One, between a friend of mine and her five-year-old who just recently got a Clover Wonder Knitter:
H: Can we go for a nap drive so I can knit in the car?
C: If we go for a nap drive, then yes, you can knit.
H: Can I knit on the way to Daisy Scouts?
C: Sure, Helen.
H: Can I knit at Daisy Scouts?
C: Well, you're supposed to be listening and doing things with your friends.
H: But can I knit during snack time at Daisy Scouts?
C: That might get messy. But I like the way you're thinking. You're thinking like a knitter.
Conversation Two, between Evan and myself:
Evan: You remembered to take the leftovers for lunch this morning!
Evan: What time did you have lunch?
Evan: Come on, fess up.
Me: Well, 8:30. I wanted to have time to knit on my lunch break.
Evan: Let me get this straight. You ate the lunch you brought with you to work at 8:30 this morning... so that you could knit on your lunch break?
Me: Well, yeah, I guess.
Evan: You do know that you have a problem, right?
