I WIN!!!

by Aimee on June 3, 2007

I had an AMAZING weekend with the boy and am now ready to move RIGHT NOW just so I can be with him more. I forget just how perfect he is for me when we are apart. For instance, at like 11:30 Friday night he said – get out your spinning wheel and show me how it works. Wha‘??? OK!!! So I spun up some stuff. He asked questions like – does it not matter how thick the yarn is – I replied that eventually it will, but I am learning and it is getting better…and sure enough it was. Then in the middle of spinning he said, “so when are you taking a dyeing class?” Ummm…are you encouraging my madness??? Why yes, yes you are! I also worked on the pinwheel while watching the worst movie I have seen in a long time (shame, Eragon was a decent book) and he said it looked cool and that I am a good friend since it is a gift.

I showed him yarn and roving. He was appropriately impressed. He said things were cool, nice, soft, etc. He is learning. And he is perfect for me. He has also agreed to do all yarny photography for me as he is into photography and has a really super nice SONY SLR digital camera. When I asked him to do it, he said “Sure, that would be really cool.” *squee*

So really, I win. I hear a lot of knitters say their SOs just don’t get it/care. Mine thinks knitting is cool and loves when I knit for him. SCORE!

My fiancee is like that too… interested and understanding… and he goes to yarn shops with me! We have come up with a good test for a yarn shop too… how do they treat the boys? If good then thumbs up! If not… we don’t go back!
Good luck with moving!
