>>shakes head at Hildegard<<
We both have various hobbies that we like to spend time on our own doing throughout the week. A typical night around here, after son goes to bed, is that we go to our computers (side by side) and do our own thing. We can still make small chat throughout the night, but we wanted something that involved more communication and closeness.
We take each others' interests seriously and try to learn more about them. My husband asks about the books that I read, the progress on my knitting, how much fun I have playing my computer game, how my day was with our son, and so on. I ask my husband how his day was at work, how much research he accomplished, what new ideas does he have, how much does he enjoy playing his games on the computer, etc.
Anne, I will ask my husband if he will model some knitting as per your request. I can't wait to see what his response will be when I tell the responses to this thread. He also takes an interest to what's happening in my knitting forum
I think the responses here are great about our partners' knitting interest. It shows a great level of respect and love in our relationships no matter if we've been together for 2 years or 20.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to extract my sons hands from my knitting basket...
