Happy Mother’s Day! Celebrate by Knitting Louise-Style!

I want to take a moment and acknowledge all the amazing moms out there. Particularly, my mom, because clearly she’s the best. She’s taken care of me, my husband, and even my dogs in the most caring and wonderful way I could ever ask for. She also makes delicious tortillas.

Here she is showing off the Christmas present I made her last year.

In celebration of today, I hope you watch the Mother’s Day Bob’s Burger’s episode, “Mom, Lies, and Videotape.” It features this amazing moment of Louise knitting the way everyone did in the 1800s, the bad ass weapon-making way:

Have a great day and knit on!

My name is Monica Rodriguez and I can’t stop fidgeting with yarn. I live in Albuquerque, NM with my husband. We belong to two terriers who manage to cuddle us just enough to keep us from revolting.

Let me know what you think!
