Ok I have got to give kudos to my husband…the man who would never dream of picking up some needles and yarn.
From the time I started knitting, my husband has been one of the biggest helps to me.
I am knitting a shawl that requires a US19 for the body and US35 for bind off…Im [B][I][U]not[/U][/I][/B] buying a US35 for [B][I][U]one [/U][/I][/B]project. Enter my husband: The engineer. He goes and gets some pvc pipe that will fit over my US19 needle and sands it down for an angled edge that the stitches will slide over and voila…ive got a bigger needle to bind off these stitches. Now, I dont know what size that was…but it was bigger than my US19 and that was the point.
That was just the most recent example of the way he “modifys” stuff to make it work for my needs at the time. And his endless ideas of what i could do for a given situation.
He also is my biggest critic about colors and workmanship.
I hope all of you have someone around that helps you in the ways my husband does…!!!
KUDOS BABY!! I love you!!!
