He would absolutely strangle me if he found out I'm snitching on him, but the other night while I was knitting he asked me if it was hard. Told him absolutely not....he should try it. OMG, he picked himself out a couple of needles and I showed him how to cast on and now he's knitting up a storm. I just look over at him concentrating so hard and just smile. He would never ever in a million years admit to this, and would totally have to quit his job if anyone there found out, but I just LOVE it!
Now he wants to go pick out some nice yarn and try a hat, and on and on and on. I would never have imagined he would want to do this. I think it's great. He's terribly clumsy with the needles and his stitches are kinda wobbly, but all in all, it's looking just fine. I had several balls of Peaches and Cream so he decided to do a dishcloth, but now that its dishcloth size and he still has a lot left, he's just keeping on. Probably end up with a towel or something. He's pretty much mastered the knit stitch, so can the purl be far behind?
Good thing he doesn't visit this site. He'd probably divorce me and ask for all my knitting paraphernalia in the settlement.
