A new knitter suffers withdrawl...

The following is a close as I can get to the original transcription of a conversation I have with my friend and co-worker, Crazy M. My friend, Sharon, just taught Crazy M. how to knit.

The names have been semi-changed to protect my arse.

Crazy M shuffles into GrimmWitch's (I am GW - step aside former president) disgustingly stifling hot box classroom.

Crazy M (in a tortured tone): GW, what should I do?

GW (fearing her friend may be uncomfortable in the heat): Are you OK?

Crazy M: Yes, but I have a problem. I need to knit.

GW (relieved and puzzled): Ok, so go knit.

Crazy M: I can't, I gotta teach a class.

GW: No, I'm taking all my kids to DARE practice (the show was great, by the way. Bravo, my minions!)

Crazy M: But I still have the 6th grade.

GW: Oh...well then you have to teach.

Crazy M: You don't seem to understand. I need to knit! I want to knit now!

GW: I'm sorry, M. But you're a good teacher; you're going to go teach that class.

Crazy M (grumbling as she shuffles from the room): What did you people do to me now? All I want to do is knit! I can't teach like this! I just want to sit and knit, that's all!

GW: I'm sorry, M, but I warned is like crack.

Even when the kids are not there I manage to have fun at work.

He hee that is hilarious...I've been there! The only time I can knit at work, is when my kids are taking their state tests!

The point the story stops being funny is when she thinks My Daughter is going to take her kids so she can knit!
I am proud of you for saying no but still being kind and respectful.
She is lucky I was not there.

I know that feeling. Sometimes I take my knitting to school with me. I know I'm not going to get to knit, but knowing it's there really helps.
