Last night my kids were playing a new video game. It was getting difficult to get them to stop playing.
I said, “That must be an addicting game”.
I was knitting at the time. My husband said “Knitting is addicting”.
I said, “Yes, it is.” Pause. “Do you want to learn to knit?” Not at all expecting anyone to go for this.
My son (age 13) says “I don’t want to be addicted to knitting.”
I think it’s good that he knows up front the risks of knitting.
