The curse

Betsy came over for tea yesterday afternoon (it has to be said that I run the most civilized office on campus, I totally have people over for tea and butter cookies) and we were talking about knitting and crocheting. I was saying that I am signing up for a crochet class because I want to make a sweater for David but I don’t think I can do it alone.
She got a weird look on her face and said, “don’t you know about the curse?”. What curse? what are we talking about? It seems that once you knit a sweater for your boyfriend you will break up. Crap. Is it different with crocheting? Probably not! I don’t want to break up with the chobo, he’s a good fella.
Generally, I’m not superstitious but I understand the psychology behind some superstitions. I will have to ponder my plan to make a sweater for him.
In other news, he is in Iowa and quickly making his way back. wooo.
