I had no idea that swimming lessons where a great place to knit. My daughter is of the age that she does not need me in the water for the lesson. I was tempted to read, but knitting allows me to keep an eye on my DD. She is having a blast and was the only one in her class to paddle the length of the pool. The first day, I was thinking that perhaps we would have a 2 week session, but now it looks like I may have several weeks of knitting time (1 hr a day/4 days/week). That I do not have to feel guilty about, since it would be risky to drag my laptop there to write. This is a pretty exciting summer development.
