I totally, have to tell this story from knitting club yesterday. So, I was working with my boys on purling and this was the conversation as they were knitting away (Keep in mind these guys are 6th and 7th graders).
Drew: "Scott, if you could make napalm or a grenade which would you make?"
Scott: "Dude, I'd do dynamite."
Jesse: "What?" Dynamite over grenade?"
Me: "Totally grenade."
Drew: "Oh yeah."
Jesse: "You get cool fragments and stuff."
Me: "It would be so cool to go to like a melon patch and throw a grenade."
Boys: "Awesome, that would be so cool."
and the conversation continued about blowing things up. I'm so proud of them.
The lesson here is, even if they are knitting, boys will be boys.
