…and a meme.
First, a pair of handspun socks made from the yarn I finished at W.O.O.L.:
My 2nd pair of SOS ’08 socks and my last. I didn’t follow a pattern, just knit plain socks using the short-row heel from Wendy’s Southwestern Socks (which I have found fits my heel very well – much better than a regular short-row heel).
Now, for those interested in seeing a little glimpse inside my relationship with RR, here is the ‘Spousal meme’ that’s making the rounds:
Me: What is your favorite thing about my knitting?
RR: My Favorite thing? That you make stuff with your hands…
Me: What is your least favorite thing about my knitting?
RR: That it’s all-consuming…
Me: What is something I have knitted that you recall as being good?
RR: Sweaters and shawls…
Me: I need a more specific answer.
RR: Well your grey shawl (the Wing of the Moth shawl) is nice but the grey sweater with the maroon stripey thing (my Olympic Sweater) is good.
Me: Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
RR: It can be.
Me: Do you have any hobbies?
RR: Yes. I bite my nails and work to buy yarn.
Me: Aren’t you funny…
Me: What are your hobbies?
RR: Seriously? Fireworks and cars.
Me: So, if we compared money/time spent on hobbies, who would win?
RR: My honey would win.
Me: What? Cars are more expensive than yarn!
RR: My car was paid for 10 years ago (*cough* more like 8), you pay for stuff all the time.
Me: We just spent a buttload of money on going to WY for fireworks and didn’t stop in *one* yarn store!
RR: That was a vacation!
Me: Do you have a stash of any kind?
RR: I guess…I have a stash of stereo stuff to sell to make $$ for yarn.
Me: you ass.
Me: Has my knitting in public ever embarrassed you?
Me: Can you name another knitting blog?
RR: What’s Scout’s thing?
Me: Scout’s Swag
RR: Or Jessie’s?
Me: What Housework?
RR: yeah, them.
Me: Do you mind that I want to check out yarn stores everywhere we go?
Me: *ahem* I’d like to point out that I didn’t set one toe in a yarn store on our road trip.
Me: Do you understand the importance of a swatch?
Me: Do you know what a swatch is?
RR: Of course! How could I pick out the fabric for a car interior or speakers without checking out a swatch first?
Me: But do you know what a swatch is for knitting?
RR: Yes! You make a little piece of knitting to help you figure out your count so you can make the right size fabric to make a sweater or something.
Me: Do you read JessaLu Knits?
Me: Have you ever left a comment?
Me: Do you think the house would be cleaner if I didn’t knit?
RR: *laughs* I dunno. No.
Me: Is there anything else you want to say?
RR: *in Forrest Gump voice* That’s all I have to say about that…
Frightening, isn’t it? ;op
