How many of you have had this conversation?
AA: Would you like a sweater?
DH: I don’t wear sweaters.
AA: (:??) Well, how about a nice hat?
DH: No thanks.
AA: A scarf?
DH: No, that’s ok, I’ve got this one my mom got me at JC Penny 12 years go.
So, what do you do if you take up knitting and your husband isn’t interested in wearing anything you might make? If you’re me, you pout a little and keep knitting.
Well, the other day I was taking a break from my big sweater project, so I cast on for a dragonfly washcloth using a ball of Bernat Handicrafters Cotton I got for next to nothing at Michael’s.
I got about three rows in and DH pipes up, “Watcha makin’?”
Actually, I’d been thinking of giving it to DM, she’s got a soft spot for dragonflies and multicolored yarn, but what’s a woman to do? He finallly wanted something I was making! So, here’s his cloth:
You can’t see the pattern too well because the yarn’s so dark, but it’s all for him! I’m thrilled, he’s happy, all is well!
