My nephew Alex arrived yesterday. He has moved to the great Pacific Northwest to finish his engineering degree. I'm soooo excited. He has turned into such a nice young man. He doesn't knit but that's okay; he talks geeky math stuff with me.
Nephews are great and I would hang with any of mine any day. Do you get to keep yours or will he be residing elsewhere?
I get to keep him for about a month. He wants his own place.

But, a big part of knitting, and it's appeal (for some) IS geeky math stuff, isn't it?
Derivatives! Charmed numbers! Torus structures and game theory! Be still my calculating engine!

It's kinda nice when nephews get to the rational human stage of life. And amazing what they will put up with and for their Uncles...(such as bringing his 4 week old daughter to a Renaissance Fesitval to meet him!)
Being a bit dyslexic - especially concerning numbers - I can't get excited about the geeky math part. However, you could always encourage him to learn to knit because math is so important when you are doing it. LOL Still, I hope you have lots of enjoyment with Alex. Nice relations with relatives make things go sooo much easier. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
YAY geeky math stuff. Almost as good as knitting.
Yeah... once I figured out that knitting was all binary, it all made sense to me
