Lots of my favourite people have done this on their blogs – Amanda, Pam and my fellow commuting knitter Britt (sorry I missed you on the train today – got caught in a meeting). CoffeeBoy was a bit reluctant – he thought I was testing him and would hold against it him. Whatever. Since I don’t have my completed Ravelympics sweater yet (6 inches to go on the sleeve & then the neckline – woohoo!) and the best boyfriend ever bought us ticket to see Neil Diamond on Saturday (at Fenway! In the dugout! Woo-hoo!), I figured it was as good as time as any to post this.
(yes he said I had to say that when describing him)
Question in bold, his answer in regular font, my response or thoughts in italics
1 – What is your favorite thing about my knitting?
That’s a loaded question.
(I don’t know why he wouldn’t answer this. Silly boy)
2 -What is your least favorite thing about my knitting?
You knit at the movies. I never know if you are enjoying the movie or not.
(I explain it’s because I fidget too much if I don’t. He still doesn’t get it.)
3 – What is something I have knitted, that you recall is good?
My socks. Or the one sock you made for me that you didn’t finish.
Ha ha. You just won’t let me forget that.
Or that blanket thing
That shawl thing.
(He means my Clapotis. Blanket…yeah whatever.)
4 – Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
no. you have boyfriends buy you swifts. It’s time consuming, that could be expensive I guess.
(Hee hee hee, if he only knew…)
5 – Do you have a stash of any kind?
yes. porno mags. (laughs) I don’t know, what is a stash? [I explain] I don’t think so.
(He does not have porn mags. I packed & unpacked all of his stuff when we moved.. I told him he has a tea stash, a guitar stash, a motorcycle stash…)
6 – Have I ever embarrassed you, knitting in public?
7 – Do you know my favorite kind of yarn?
Well i know you buy a lot of alpaca but I think your favourite is something you don’t buy because it’s too expensive like yak. (he means quivit)
(I probably would have said sock yarn or Malabrigo I think, but I don’t have a real fave yarn I do love alpaca – but I think he just remembers how much I liked the alapcas at the wool festival)
8 – Can you name another blog besides mine?
Anthony Bourdain’s blog. Can you name another football team other than the Patriots?
Yes I can – [I name several] I do watch it with you.
(I think he doesn’t really understand blogs – he was asking me about them a couple of days ago (where do you find them?) & I sent him Bourdain’s blog link)
9 – Do you mind my wanting to stop at knit shops wherever we go?
I don’t mind that, taking you to a knit shop out of the way maybe. I took you to that wool festival [NH S&W] and I didn’t mind that.
(I don’t really ask him to go out of his way to go to a yarn store actually, I prefer to go on my own or with my mom/friends)
10 – Do you understand the importance of a swatch? Please elaborate.
Are you talking about about a Swatch watch? Then no.
(I have explained them before)
11 -Do you read my blog?
no. I used to read The Little Green House one, but you don’t send me the link to your blog
It’s on the bottom of every email I send! (we exchange several during the workday)
Oh, I thought that was just spam
Hrmph I don’t care if you read it, I just don’t think you’ll find it very interesting.
The little green house blog is a very old one about our house in portland, before I even had a decent camera, mostly for our relatives)
12 – If I didn’t knit, what would be different?
I don’t know, I didn’t know you before you knit. You’d make me talk about my feelings?
