Now I have to confess something rather childish. I (m) really liked knitting at nursery and primary school. A few weeks ago, my girlfriend started knitting. Just to relieve stress and for the fun of it. It aroused memories of my childhood and how we used to do it at school. So when I was at home by myself once, I nabbed my girlfriend's knitting and tried to see if I could still do it. However, it didn't look good and I pulled it apart again. But because you can find any kind of how-to video on YouTube, I quickly got the knack of it again. Since then I have been secretly knitting my girlfriend's knitting projects. With a plain-colored scarf it wasn't a problem that it was ten centimeters longer the next day. However, at the moment she is making a multicolored snood and changes the color every few centimeters. Naturally, that makes it somewhat harder to complete her work without being caught. Recently she sat down on the couch and just said, "What the hell have I done there?" I had chosen a completely different color order than she had done before. Somehow I find it really exciting to do her knitting in secret and I just find knitting fun. However I would't dream of telling her that I also like to knit. Instead of that I laugh at her when she knits, to make her think that it doesn't appeal to me at all. That means I will probably have to carry on knitting in secret.
