After this Row

I signed up for a little metal stamping workshop at The Smithery and made a stitch marker.

When my boys were younger, they were always asking me to do this or that for them while I was knitting. I would say, “After this row.”

They were too young to have much patience. They would keep asking me and I would respond the same way, “After this row.”

“But that’s what you said last time!”

“I’m still on the same row!”

I don’t get interrupted very often anymore. I probably would have forgotten all about it, but I think Bob asked me to do something for him recently (a rarity) and I said, “After this row,” and smiled.
