"Knitting makes you look so, like, OLD..."

Or so I was told by someone at work yesterday. So last night I took my decrepit old self out to meet with some other fogeys to knit. Because we're so un-hip, we went here:


Where I had this:


A traditional Mayan (Aztec?) "chocoatl" made with chocolate, hot water (instead of milk), cinnamon, honey and chiles. Also, they had very, very good chocolate truffles. Some made with tequila, that had rock-salt sprinkled on top. Sounds weird, but don't knock 'em till you've tried 'em. They were frackin' amazing.

Yep, this knitting thing is definitely making me old before my time! And I'm pretty OK with that. Though I'm thinking about getting this T-shirt.

I totally want one of those shirts! And if knitting makes you old at least you are fabulous looking at 60! (Is that a good knitting assumed age?)

I like the venus de knitting shirt myself - and for Sarah in the kootenays - guess I better be getting my cane out soon!! since 60 is old ; (

Uh oh. Is that my foot in my mouth? I wasn't intenteding to put 60 under the old lable. Simply that it is older than Erin's current age by a number of years and a good assumed first knitting age since, in most cases, 60 would be post-kids. Don't get that cane out just yet!

At least it's a foot with a good chance of being wrapped in knitting at some point...how many people get that privilege?

T Shirt very cool! Chocoatl sounds beyond amazing! I want some!! The sock in the upper right corner of your blog page is stunning..what is the yarn? And who the heck cares if knitting makes us look older, beats the heck out of trying to look young the rest of our lives, and more fun to boot.

Hi!

I know you probably don't know me, but I read your blog every time you post. I wanted to let you know that I've nominated you for the Rockin' Girl Blogger Award. If you wish, you can steal the button off my site (http://yarn-goddess.blogspot.com). Congratulations!

Well, that's rude. I hope you kicked them in the 'nads. And never make a sock for them.

I think you're on to something. My spouse even thinks it makes me look old.

I say that I'm NOT old and if he ever expects me prove it to him in a naked sort of way, he better lay off the knitting.

Hasn't said a word about it since.

Knitting keeps me from getting into too much trouble. So, people are going to talk about me anyway. I think they're just jealous of the comraderie of the knitting circle.
