Proof that Computer Games Aren't Evil!
Fast forward to last night and Snowy was googling images of Yoshi, which he does at night and when the weather is too bad etc.
"Look, a knitted Yoshi!"
I replied using my all-things-Mario response. "Awesome!"
Quiet. "Mum ?"
"Can you teach me to knit ?"
Yep, my gamer boy has taken up the noble craft of knitting. Six rows today. Who knows how long the desire to knit a whole roomful of Mario toys will last and how many rows he will actually knit ?
Who knows if I will ever be able to find a pattern for a knitted Yoshi ?
Still, this is proof positive in my own home that a obsessive interest in computer games is like a branch that is capable of suddenly putting out a new, green shoot in a completely different direction.
My boy's knitting truly is awesome!
