Do you lie to your Domestic Partner...
or anyone else about your knitting stash? About how much you have? About how much it cost? EMWTK

Nope, my hubby knows when I go to the yarn store and I tell him how much I spent. He doesn't care at all!

What a sweetie, huh??

No, no secret purchases here lol. I am always too excited not to share my purchases with DH. He encourages me to stop at the LYS when we are near which is almost every weekend on the way to get groceries . Such a sweetie he is.

Well no, I don't lie, but he doesn't know how much I spend either. I do all the bills and the checkbook so he has no clue what is in the bank or even the balance on the credit cards. Not that he couldn't know as all he would have to do is look at the checkbook register in my purse or online at the bank or credit card companies. He just doesn't care. As for stash, that would be hard because it is kept in wooden basket type drawers in my coffee table.

Since I have a problem spending big bucks on a hank of yarn, I doubt it would ever become an issue.

well, I might fudge the total a little.... but he knows what I have and when I go. and he's pretty good about NOT saying "why do you need more yarn?" ha ha

Don't have one, but I don't see as how it would be any of his business as long as I was using my own money.

hmmm my own money. lol.... It sort of all gets lumped into "our money". Even though he makes more than I do he insists it is our money.

I don't lie to my domestic prtner at all. Of course, he lives in another domicile now, anyway. He freely lies to me, though. :grr:

Re: yarn purchases... I buy stuff and then hide it, so when I pull it out a few months later and he says "when did you buy that???" I can say "Oh, months ago! I've had this!" with a guilt-free conscious.
