Knitting a Bond

My wife took up knitting and crochet a few months ago. It’s a great way to pass the time in waiting rooms while Kai is in therapy. It also gives her something to do on long car rides.

Her latest project involves knitting a series of squares of different colors that she then puts together. The pattern she is using labels each square with a different letter.

Kai has long been into anything that includes letters or numbers. And so when he saw Mom’s knitting pattern with all those letters, he had to know what it was all about.

My wife explained to him what she was doing. He was fascinated. He then created his own chart to keep track of her progress.

“What letter are you working on now?” he will often ask. “Which one are you going to do next?”

And then he will update his data.

Knitting: the common bond between a boy and his mom. Who would have known?


  1. That is cute. Compiling stats and charting them...he is a little scientific researcher in the making...only half joking...I think he would excel in scientific research.

    1. Ha, it will be interesting to see how his interests develop as he gets older.

    1. I don't know if he's smart, but if you include letters and numbers in anything, he will be interested.
