So, my husband is in Florida doing some training for the Air Force. I taught him to knit last September and he took his needles and yarn along to do some practice.
He knits these things he calls “practice mice”. He’ll CO 15 stitches, knit for about an inch, then cast off (then he showers me with them ha ha ha).
Anyway, he called me earlier and said that he went wandering around town and found an LYS. He went in there to look at needles and said that the owners stared at him for a good long while.
Picture this: 6’ tall man, in uniform with his current project sticking out of his leg pocket.
They finally approached him and asked him if the yarn sticking out of his uniform was his project and where very happy to have a knitting man in their shop.
So if you have an LYS between Pensacola and Panama Beach, Florida and you saw a tall, blue-eyed airman in uniform browsing through needles at your store, that was my hubby.
I’m so proud of him ^___^
He’s just started practicing ribbing so he can CO for a pair of socks.
