I think when your raising your children, you wonder if they're paying attention to anything you say (especially teenagers). Especially the one who says "I don't have to learn to knit, my mother will make it for me."
It's one thing when your knitting for small children, and you don't have a job outside the home. You can crank out a lot of child size articles. But there comes a time when, mommy has to go to work, and her children are wearing adult size clothing. Mother doesn't have the time do knit stuff for herself, let alone other adults in her life.
Well Boss Cat has come a long way, from that little girl, and realized that she would have to pick up the needles, if she wanted anything hand knit for herself.
So today....Mother's Day....made me realize that children do listen to their parents on some level.
