Living on the edge

Started : (Re)teaching the Flame how to knit so that we can both contribute to the afghan for friends getting married.

Worried : That this could ruin a good thing, there might not be a boyfriend sweater curse in this relationship, but there might be a boyfriend knitting curse.

Worried Disclaimer : The Flame is actually quite a competent knitter (some early knitting tension issues, but those should resolve with practise) but it's like teaching your boy/girlfriend how to drive.

Saved : Found a very West Coast piece of pottery for the lovely couple instead on our first trip to the Ladner Village Market. Strawberry/Rhubarb pie for breakfast, fresh cheese curds, many lovely plants found, a relationship back on solid ground.

Phew.

Today, Zipper Search 2006, The Final Chapter. Digging will be delivered tomorrow even if I have to use my treasured and diminishing stash of pewter clasps.

I re-taught boy to drive standard, and we made it through that with no damage (to the relationship *or* the car). Fret not.

Ha ha! You are so brave! There is no way I would teach Ian. One time we were making paper cranes for someone we knew, and that was the extent of our combined craftiness. Good on ya! And to answer the crepe pan question, the one without the dip. It's just a really shallow, evenly heating pan, works well though!
