Speaking of DH's......
My husband is a knot-freak.... He loves to dig-in my "scrap" bag and untangle all those little balls of yarn....Is that a disease? He's a keeper

My DH's great thing is that he likes going yarn shopping with me and he always asks "are you SURE that is all you want to get?"

Yet another keeper!

Wow--that's really cool! He is a keeper! Isn't it sweet when husbands do sweet little thoughtful things like that?

Can I borrow both of yours for a while?

Mine is a gem but doesn't get knitting at all - he's actually terrified I'll knit something for him!!!

That would be my Mom. She loves to untangle my yarn. She says there is something soothing about it and she feels accomplished when she gets it all done.

Me -- I have to stop myself from grabbing the scissors and cutting out all the knots!

Best,
Susan

My DH is the best. He listens very intently when I talk about knitting, he's even been to the yarn store and felt up all the different fibers. He has no interest whatsoever, but he is SO GOOD at pretending. The fact that he would bother tells me he's a keeper!

What?! Where do you find men like that?

I wanted to show my husband e-mail that I had received, so I called him into my office. He yelled from the kitchen, "You're not planning on showing me pictures of more yarn, are you?"

I am up for a bit to let the dog out and couldn't stand it, I had to check in over here and what do I find?! A post about DH's...well, ask around, I know I've not been here in a while cause the doc has had me on and off (mostly on) bedrest for a few months....BUT...I have THE BEST HUSBAND IN THE WORLD, hands down
LOL, I was able to go on vacation, then had major, major setbacks when we returned. So, it's taken me a few weeks to do this, edit the pics (one now and then) and then post the goodies on my blog (type a bit and save as draft for several days) so that I could reveal my Knitty Christmas goodies....you will notice a few very cool ones from my bud, horve1 and the rest are from the greatest husband in the world, Lonnie....go have a look
He's since surprised me with some other goodies, but it will take a while for me to create another post. LOL, as a matter of fact, I've sat far too long creating this post, but ya'll know I couldn't pass up talking about Lonnie, The Man.....the husband of the Spoiled Knitter

LOL, all that said to say that Lonnie spoils me with knitty things constantly....hasn't slowed down one bit since I've been away from KH for health reasons

I LOVE AND MISS YA'LL SO VERY, VERY, VERY MUCH

cheley, can you send your hubby over here for a bit?

I must say, mine is a keeper too. When I was wavering back and forth about the Options set (I couldn't decide if I wanted to spend that much money since I had just quit my job), he basically ordered me to get them. How could I argue with that?

And he actually listens when I talk about knitting. I know this because one day I was knitting something and he asked me if what I was doing was purling (I was).
