Follow-up on Day 8 – I posted a link to Day 8 in a knitting group on Facebook because I felt others would enjoy Rob’s words on knitting, and I was right. He did such a wonderful job at characterizing knitting today. In his words you also were provided insight into one of the reasons I love him so much. Before we were married he would go into Joann’s with me to help pick out fabric for a quilt, or beads for a necklace, or yarn for a shawl … didn’t matter, if I asked he would come, unless it was one of my all day affairs. Don’t know that any non-crafty significant other can take that! When I was quilting or beading, he would express his opinion on material choices, asked how it went together and really getting to understand what I was doing.
The funny thing is when it comes to knitting, he is totally mystified. When he looks at the charts and patterns I am creating, he says it looks like a foreign language or programming code. Correct he is! But the idea that all those symbols produces something is magic to him. So in knitting he helps with the material choices, but understanding how it comes together, he admits ain’t gonna happen. But he loves what comes out and appreciates what it took to create it. Isn’t that really all that is necessary?
A couple people said I should have him guest blog again … I am only 9 days into a 100 day project, I think he will have ample opportunity :).
