When someone asks what color my niece's sweater is I'd much rather say "Pink Belly" than "Pink Blush".
LOL this is awesome

Me and my wife knit together all the time and it's always time well spent.

You guys who have hubbys that are interested in knitting are SO lucky! Just today my hubby looks at what I'm knitting (a tank top) and says "that looks so tedious and time consuming. why don't you just buy one?" I rolled my eyes and said: uuuuuuuh, why don't you just buy a clue cuz you ain't got one! He will never be a knitter because if he thinks it's tedious then he's missing the point.

That's pretty much my DH's attitude.....something in the RI water maybe?
