Interview

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?
Larry:  Everything.

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?
Larry:  No

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!

    I love reading the spouse interviews. I am glad he owned up to his hobby being expensive. Some try and hide that.

  7. Opal says:

    What a great interview! Larry is definitely a keeper. I’m amazed that he knows what a swatch is.

    I adore that cat picture. It totally looks like the couch fell on him so I was taken back at first. The things those felines do to make themselves comfortable are awesome.

    Larry sounds so sweet. I am very impressed that he knows what a swatch is. I know my hubby doesn’t.

    Have a great vacation. :0)

    Re Lacewing: Yep, already queued it. And this from someone who has yet to knit a shawl of any description!
    Re Larry: Loved his answers. What a great support he is to you and your knitting. Particularly loved his answer when you asked him if he ever reads your blog. 🙂
    Re Holiday: Enjoy!!!

  12. Lorraine says:

    Jeanne- He got a perfect score- the fact that he answered that many questions on knitting says alot.

    More cat pictures please!
