Seasonal Knitter
Created By: S Sharon

Being a mother of 3 very active children, knitting has been a lifesaver for me. Not in the way most people would think. I consider myself a "seasonal knitter." What exactly is that? Well, with 3 children playing baseball, I have several hours each evening to sit and knit. Each night from about April until November, I spend at least 2 hours at a ball game. On weekends it varies between 2-6 hours per day. We are a 7 day a week baseball family. My only salvation is to KNIT! I love watching my 2 sons play ball and my daughter play softball. This gives me something to keep myself occupied.

A 5 year-old brother of a team mate on my sons team seemed so intrigued by a poncho I was making last summer for my daughter. He said he'd love one. Well, since he's a boy, I told him I'd make him a blanket. He chose red, white, and blue. When he saw me working on it (last fall), his face lit up. He knew it was for him. Winter came and went, blanket not worked on. Spring came, baseball season started and he saw me and asked if his blanket was ready yet. I said it's not finished because I am a "seasonal knitter." I don't knit between baseball seasons! This was a bit confusing to a 5 year-old, but I promised him it will be ready before his 6th birthday on June 30!
