I've just been going to the site and gazing at it like a jilted lover.

I'm a mess. And I don't get the sense from the posts here that this is likely to let up.
Ok... since no one else will do this.....



Feel better now?

Lonnie and I are just happy to indulge one another's hobbies, no fuss, no muss. If it makes me happy, he's thrilled! And I feel the same about him and his hobbies :D. Although, I will confess that he surprises me with mine much more than I do with his bc I don't know exactly what to get when it comes to keeping up with all of his electronics; guitars, etc, etc..I surprise differently
I just decided that I had better EDIT before something is said....I leave notes in his lunch, send cards and/or small gifts to work, etc.

I was at my LYS over the weekend and got to feel Malabrigo wool...and this is exactly how I feel. I keep going to sites that carry it, just so I can look at it some more. It's unbelievable.

My hubby is a knitting enabler thank goodness! He's found advantages to me staying in one place on the couch. See he's a cuddler and normally I'm running around doing this and that. Now i curl up with my needles and yarn like a cat and he can cuddle up against me,lol.

Since finding that knitting keeps me from nagging and keeps me on the couch during our TV shows instead of running around and asking him to tell me what happened, he's grown very fond of my new hobby. He thinks its "cute" to watch me rush in the door with my new aquirements and dissappear into a corner all by myself. He asked me the other day if I would prefer a needlemaster kit or a set of birch hand-made needles from santa. Of course I said BOTH!!! :rofling:
