So at the firehall, when we aren't running calls and all the chores, station duties, training, truck maintenance, and inspections are done, we get to enjoy some downtime. We have sudoku and crossword wizards, woodworkers, chrome polishers and knitters. Well, knitter. Singular. As in me. I still remember the look on my Captain's face when I was just a few months on the job.... I pulled out my knitting needles and pink yarn. He promptly told me to put it away. Imagine. Big tough firefighter intimidated by a little bit of pink wool. Wonder what he would have thought if I had brought in my sewing machine.
