This is where my family can be found, just about every night around 9:30 p.m. Gathered around one of DH's Fathers day gifts.
I'm not quite sure whether it's a family togetherness thing... or a pyro mentoring thing... but- either way when you have 3 boys... you roll with it. (Or light it up... I should say;)
While my men circle the fire and compete for marshmallow toasting pefection, I sit, and well... any guesses?
Tonight, I'll be using these:
Knit Lites. Yeah. As far as needles go- functional, but, not exactly stellar. However- for LIGHTSABERS... pretty sweet. You can ask Noah. I bought them ( in the new 10" length) for movie knitting. (Saw Evan Almighty- Sunday- nothing to build a theology around- but we all loved it. And it's hard to find a movie that my teens like- the little guys will sit through and won't put my husband and I to sleep) They worked a little too well.
Wanna hear your teens actually LOL? Buy these needles. Take them to the movies. Light-em up and start knitting. After about 4 minutes, and right smack dab in the middle of a row- a pubescent movie nazi will shine HIS light (much brighter) in your face and politely ask you to douse your 'sabers. End of movie knitting- cue the teenagers laughing. "Mom got busted! mom got busted!" Yeah the laughs were between chants. I clicked them off. Was just trying to knit.. Didn't want to ruin anyone else's movie night.
There are no knitting/movie nazis.....(well- except for me) around my backyard campfire. So there.
