I went to a Scout Leaders meeting tonight. This a meeting of all the leaders in my Scout group, where we discuss plans for the future, equipment purchases, programmes etc. I took me knitting.
I don't think I will be converting my Cub leader to knitting any time soon, she looked at me as if i was growing horns. She has known me a while but I don't think she knew I knitted so she found it strange to see me knit and even stranger that I was knitting socks1 Her comment was 'it's easier to buy them'. My assistant Beaver leader knows I knit and her comment was ' you always knit socks at this time of year', she saw my first effort last year. I will haveto take my knitting more often so they all get used to it, my Cub leader might even see the purpose of it.
To all you Americans - Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you all have a lovely day!
