I’ve seen this meme on other blogs, most recently on Lynne’s so I thought I’d do it (yes, that’s right – I don’t have any knitting to show you!)
Me: What is your favorite thing about my knitting?
Larry: I like getting socks. (Good thing he didn’t mention Cobblestone!)
Me: What is your least favorite thing about my knitting?
Larry: When you hand me a ball of yarn that’s exploded and ask me to untangle it.
Me: What is something that I have knit that you recall as being good?
Me: Can you be more specific?
Larry: No, I think everything is good.
Me: Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
Larry: Moderately expensive. Overall, its not that expensive, but look at all the money you spent on stash. You have a pretty big inventory.
Me: Do you have any hobbies?
Larry: Yes – golf.
Me: So if we compared time/money spent on hobbies, who would win?
Larry: You would win on time, I would win on money. (as a side note, I feel a little less guilty on the Wollmeise thing now!)
Me: Do you have a stash of any kind?
Larry: Old golf balls that I save for the kids.
Me: Has my knitting in public ever embarrased you?
Me: Can you name another knitting blog?
Larry: Off the top of my head no. I know there are a million of them.
Me: Do you mind that I want to check out yarn stores everywhere we go?
Larry: Nope, in fact, I always offer to take you places.
Me: Do you understand the importance of a swatch
Larry: Yes, it tells you that the needle size and stitch size is perfect.
Me: Do you read my blog
Larry: No, I live it
Me: Have you ever left a comment
Larry: I don’t read it, but I comment on your stuff to you every day
Me: Do you think the house would be cleaner if I didn’t knit
Larry: No – we have house cleaners so it doesn’t matter
Me: Is there anything else you’d like to comment on about my knitting or blogging?
Larry: No, um….I like the little knitting basket you have next to your chair.
And with that, Larry breathed a sigh of relief and quickly escaped.
Andrew left for school Thursday night – he took us out to dinner at a really nice restaurant where we ate outside on the patio – it was a beautiful summer night, and we had a great time with him. He drives himself to school, so he packed up after we got home from dinner and left at 10:30 at night – crazy kid. Much different than his first year when we all made the trek down to Maryland. He’s happy to be back at school, but I miss him already.
Yesterday, I picked up Cieara at the airport – she had a great time in California and did a great job flying by herself. It was very good to have her home, though – I really missed her! We went out to dinner with her and Dan and had a really nice time – we also ate outside and it was just a beautiful night out.
Both nights were good times that led perfectly up to today – the first day of vacation. I had a little work to do this morning, but now I’m done, and I’m free until after Labor Day. I have lots of knitting, spinning, beach, golf and family time planned. And some unscheduled lying around, relaxing and not doing much of anything as well. Maybe checking out a new yarn store. We’ll see. I do want to get some projects finished. And maybe some projects started. (Did you see this?)
As I said, I don’t have any new knitting to show, so how about a cat picture?
Tom looks like the couch fell on him – but he just decided to sleep wrapped around the leg.
OK, I’m off! Have a great weekend!
