HusBoy on Knitting

I totally stole this from the Samurai Knitter, (thanks for commenting Julie!). Here's an interview with the HusBoy:

What is your favourite thing about my knitting?

You makin' me stuff. Plus the joy that it brings you, I really love that.

What is your least favourite thing about my knitting?

That's a loaded question.

What is something I have knitted, that you recall as good?

Favorite thing that you've knitted for yourself: the Buck Fifty cardigan. Favorite thing you've knitted for someone else: the penguin you knitted for Short-Stuff (our little cousin).

Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?

It depends. It can be for some, but for you it's an investment in your happiness (awwww).

Any hobbies?

There's the cooking, the reading, the book collecting. Especially finding books written by my favorite authors under pseudonyms.

Do you have a stash of any kind?

Books, oh god, the books.

Have I ever embarrassed you, knitting in public?

Uh, no. Can't think of a single time you've embarrassed me. I know you've made other people uncomfortable.

Do you know my favourite kind of yarn?

Noro (he said that realllly fast).

Can you name another blog?

You mean besides the Yarn Harlot? Samurai Knitter (I just mentioned her, he's cheating).

Do you mind my wanting to stop at knit shops wherever we go?


Do you understand the importance of a swatch?

Yes, oh god yes I know.

Do you read my blog?

Occasionally, but I know you put stuff in there you don't necessarily want me to read or hear.

Have you ever left a comment?

Yeah, I am pretty sure I have.

Do you think the house would be cleaner if I didn't knit?

No (laughs). I think I'd be more injured/maimed, if you didn't knit.

Anything you'd like to add?

I especially don't mind the knitting as long as you churn something out for me at least once a year.

That was really great, your HusBoy loves you I can tell.

Now I don't think mine would even answer the questions... and if he did I don't think he would have been quite as nice.

But he knows knitting means sanity so he tolerates me. LOL If I made money on the knitting I think he'd be more supportive. I like to give it away. Oops

Yeah, he's a keeper. I love that he knows the importance of a gauge swatch and your fave yarn. :)
