Me: They have one!
Mate: One what?
Me: A pattern for the thing ZoomBoy wants for his birthday. *shows Mate THIS LINK*
Mate: Are you serious?
Me: Yup. He asked. Said it was the only thing he really wanted.
Mate: No, really.
Me: He called it "an infinity mitten".
Mate: You can make that?
Me: I hope so, I just bought the pattern.
Mate: What are you going to do for the other hand?
Squish: I told her she should make a purple one, and give it black fingernails, with veins and stuff.
Mate and I: ewwww... no!!!
Squish: I think it would be great!
Me: Plain gold glove. No worries.
Me: I have to buy yarn tomorrow.
Mate: I bet if I excavated the garage--
Me: See this color gold?
Me: Have you ever, in a thousand years, seen me come home with anything that looks like that?
Me: Yarn store.
Mate: God. Seriously?
Me: I also need to buy the fake stones.
Mate: Heh heh heh... that's sort of fun.
Me: Right? Anyway-- I need to hurry. His birthday dinner's next Friday.
Mate: Damn. That's all he wants?
Me: Hey-- beats the heck out of his first suggestion.
Me: He wanted a head-to-toe outfit, so, leg warmers to match his sweater and his hat.
Mate: OH DEAR GOD NO!!!
Me: Right? He said that way he could wear shorts to school.
Mate: AUGH! That one's committed, like you read about!
Mate: But good luck on the Infinity Mitten. Seriously. In a week.
Me: *sighs* Yeah. Good thing the cat likes knitting.
Mate: I think she just thinks there's bugs on the string.
Cat: bugs bugs bugs bugs EAT YARN!
Me: Very possible. Night hon.
Mate: Happy knitting.
