There was a moment during the Williams College information session where I thought the teenage boy just wasn’t going to make it. It was when they mentioned that knitting was offered as an intercession class.
Knitting is everywhere in the Northeast. Handknit hats, scarves, I even saw a great dress in Harvard yard today. And ravelry knitters too-introducing themselves by their screenames and giggling.
That’s a lot for any 18 year old boy to cope with – even one who can knit. But I’m pleased to say he came through. He has acknowledged the importance of wearing a hat up here and likes all of the schools.
I’m looking forward to having him up here. Of course I would never impose by coming to visit, but I am going to have to return frequently to Metaphor Yarn in Shelburne Falls (my purchases of local yarns there will have to be an entire post after I get home and can photograph it all). Nice people those knitters at Metaphor!
