Still Fall

The peepers are still singing though.

Almost finished with the second sleeve of Williams - it is about five inches from being done and then all I have left is the neckline. Trying to finish in time for Rhinebeck, even though I might not get there this year. I love goals.

A Meme

Knitting is such a huge part of my life that I don't even think about what my husband thinks about me doing it so much. It's become a way of life to make things - something soothing to fall back on when I'm stressed or down or feeling great. I came across this interview on Alison's blog and loved it so am going to see what's what with the other half downstairs.

Me: What is your favorite thing about my knitting?

Tom: It keeps you busy and once in a while I get a few projects to keep my ass warm.

Me: What is your least favorite thing about my knitting?

T: It's an obsession.

Me: What is something I have knitted, that you recall as good?

T: My awesome green sweater.

Me: Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?

T: Not compared to people that shop at Bloomingdales.

Me: Do you have a stash of any kind?

T: A stash of what? I have a house full of stash, dowsing stuff, books, rocks.... [and on and on].

Me: Have I ever embarrassed you, knitting in public?

T: Oh fuck yeah.

Me: Do you know my favorite kind of yarn?

T: Merino.

Me: Can you name another blog?

T: Tinkers Without a Cause. [Does this even exist?]

Me: Do you mind my wanting to stop at knit shops wherever we go?

T: No.

Me: Do you understand the importance of a swatch?

T: [I censored this because he said something really stupid and pissed me off. He protested but I ignored him. Trust me. It's not worth it.]

Me: Do you read Knitting Moonsilver?

T: No.

Me: Have you ever left a comment?

T: No.

Me: Do you think the house would be cleaner if I didn't knit?

T: Your mess is nothing compared to my mess.

Me: Anything you'd like to add?

T: I think that spinning, weaving and the myriad ways of working thread mirror the intricacies of being a woman, taking loose ends and making things out of nothing.
