It's funny you should mention sewing. My husband loves to sew. He's been working on this cloak for me for a few years (lack of time), and he has the materials for a quilt he's been wanting to make for forever. Issue is, he likes to hand sew. We have a machine, and he's very happy with it, but the things he's been wanting to sew he really wants to do with his two hands alone.

Me? I don't like sewing.

You need to tell him how good custom hand knit socks feel. They would also be great project to take with him hiking and camping. Knitting next to a beautiful woman and warm fire would be great relaxation.

At least until interrupted by the "call of the wild."

That's SO cool! Hooray for him!
I wish mine would, especially since he's had hand surgery, I think it would be good physical therapy.

WOW!!!! (hope nobody so far has gotten hurt!) I really hope that your husband changes his mind because to me, knitting is relaxing. Try bribing him with tickets to a baseball or football game. He might like that! ( I am sort of serious!)

Unfortunately for us, we have a two year old, so any call of the wild that my happen on a camping trip will be him screeching his little head off in glee. Or our screams as we try to keep little hands out of the fire.
