the interview

Me: What is your favorite thing about my knitting?
Hubby: It makes you happy… and your happiness is very important to me.

Me: What is your least favorite thing about my knitting?
Hubby: It’s harder to give you hugs when you have pointy needles in your hands.

Me: What is something I have knitted that you recall as being good?
Hubby: The surprise baby sweater and the tilted duster thing were ultimately both really great (though you weren’t sure going into each project)!

Me: Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
Hubby: not as expensive as mine, so… “no”

Me: Do you have any hobbies?
Hubby: I think you know about my hobbies, why ask?

Me: What are your hobbies?
Hubby: great wine, great food, and great highbrow live performance (with the all-too-infrequent splash of good old musical theatre).

Me: If we compared money spent on hobbies, who would win?
Hubby: Why even ask this question? I have you so beat!!!

Me: Has my knitting in public ever embarrassed you?
Hubby: Has mine?

Me: Do you know my favorite kind of yarn?
Hubby: There are just too many to choose from, how could you possibly have just one favorite?

Me: Can you name another blog?
Hubby: I know you love both Mason Dixon and the Yarn Harlot.

Me: Do you mind that I want to check out yarn stores everywhere we go?
Hubby: Sure it’s okay. You drag me where you want, and I’ll drag you where I want. Besides, I like feeling the yarn.

Me: Do you understand the importance of a swatch?
Hubby: Um… could it have something to do with the ball or skein not giving you a clear idea of how the yarn will look once it’s knit?

Me: Do you read Yarn and Cocktails?
Hubby: Whenever there is a new post – though I don’t really get the knitty techy stuff. But the pictures are great!

Me: Have you ever left a comment?
Hubby: Yes, but it was usually to correct some inaccuracy you posted about me.

Me: Do you think the house would be cleaner if I didn't knit?
Hubby: Knitting has nothing to do with it!

Me: Is there anything you would like to add in closing?
Hubby: Good bye!

So cute. :) I like the part about him commenting to fix inaccuracies about himself. And the comment about the house cleanliness having nothing to do about knitting.

Fun post! I think M would say he likes me to knit for the same reasons, and he also is a wine and food guy (actually all sorts of alcohol guy). Does your husband cook?

I think I would have a much harder time staying sane without knitting.
