A Jack Of All Trades .


He is a jack of all trades  and a master of none lol ! Papa  that is  who can do so much and  likes to try his hand at all kinds of things  . He has picked it up crocheting  again and is making an afghan .  He used to crochet many years ago and like with his wood working he  enjoys making things with his hands he also can sew  and knit as well as all  kinds of things  like build things , fix things , do pluming , electrical , mechanics , technical /computers , crafts , photography and more  .

When we went into fabric land for the wool and for the crochet tools and then got to the counter to pay the lady typically thought all of it was for me  then Papa piped up and said no  he is making it .  The look on her face was WOW ! that's cool  and then she said to him good for you .  People are in shock at first but then are in AWE that he can do these things  and will even admit  them lol !  Proudly I may add !

To be honest I wasn't going to put any of this up on the blog cause some people , like  guys  at his work may see it and think some silly things but to be honest I think it is great he can do so much and likes to do it and it is rare to have a man that can do just about anything he puts his mind to no matter what that might be . I am proud of Papa for all he does  , yeah ok we joke about some things like this crocheting he is doing or  what others may see it as stereo typed things but he likes to do them  and  really who says one has to be of a specific gender to enjoy and do these things  .

Miggs seems to like the idea to as she sits beside him as he is crocheting and likes to sniff and play with the wool some times  and thinks her stuffy toys can help to  lol !

                                           Slowly getting there .  Not bad for just starting yesterday late afternoon .

Now Papa has taken a bit of a break from Crocheting and  has gone out side to set up the Christmas decorations  with ideas he has  for that   , but bet your boots he will be back in soon and get right back to making his Afghan .

                                                                              Until next time

Well done Papa, crochet is not just for women, and many famous designers are men.

I guess it's relaxing to do, mentally and physically speaking. I saw a guy doing that yesterday while walking through a mall.

I know I couldn't do it. My fine motor skills just aren't quite up to par.

I've never known a guy to crochet. That's pretty cool.

Not silly at all!! I am cheering him on, and will look forward to seeing his finished project! And tell Papa, that I've known other men who have knitted and crocheted, and even cross stitch, it is not just for girls! :-) If he loves and enjoys it, that should be enough -- GO PAPA!!
