Bruce Has His Say

Others have noted it before me but blogland is really quiet lately. I suppose that it's a summer thing. Everyone goes on vacation from home and blogs. Memes are made for times like these when you're wrapped up on lengthy projects and feeling relaxed. No drama or major occurrences to write about.

I saw this little interview meme on a few blogs recently and I found myself wondering what Hubbo would say if I asked him the same questions - so I did. Here is what he said.

Me: What is your favorite thing about my knitting?
Bruce: Warm feet?

Me: Really?
Bruce: No, I like how happy it makes you.

Me: Awww. What is your least favorite thing about my knitting?
Bruce: The yarn is taking over the house.

DSC_0550Me: What is something I have knitted that you recall as being good?
Bruce: The sweater you did for Reed and the Shawl you made for your grandmother.

Me: Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
Bruce: Yes! More expensive than my hobby.

Me: Interestingly that brings me to the next question. Do you have any hobbies? Bruce: Golf & softball.

Me: And you think they’re less expensive?
Bruce: Absolutely!

Me: What about the fantasy football?
Bruce: Still cheaper than all the yarn in the house.

Me: So, if we compared money/time spent on hobbies, who would win?
Bruce: You. You do your hobby every day.

Me: Do you have a stash of any kind?
Bruce: What do you mean stash? What is stash? Extra golf balls?

Me: How about the growing collection of golf clubs? Or softball t-shirts?
Bruce: I didn’t buy the golf clubs.

Me: They’re still taking up a lot of space
Bruce: Your yarn takes up more

Me: Has my knitting in public ever embarrassed you? Honestly.
Bruce: No. You haven’t tried knitting in synagogue yet. Really, no.

Me: Do you know my favorite kind of yarn?
Bruce: Koigu? Is that right? You like the merino wools but you don’t really have a favorite.
Me: Good answer.

Me: Can you name another knitting blog?
Bruce: Carole Knits, Scout’s blog, the Yarn Harlot. I’m thinking of starting a blog for husbands of knit bloggers.
Me: Haha, I knew you'd say those.

Me: Do you mind that I want to check out yarn stores everywhere we go?
Bruce: Occasionally. I think I should get points for finding a yarn store to get you a treat when I was in NYC recently. I even found it on my own in the middle of everything.
Me: Yes, that was really nice.

Me: Do you understand the importance of a swatch?
Bruce: Yes. It gives you your gauge.

Me: Do you read Knitting4Shirley?
Bruce: Yes.

Me: Have you ever left a comment?
Bruce: No

Me: Do you think the house would be cleaner if I didn't knit?
Bruce: Clean and cluttered are 2 different things. It might be less cluttered. I wouldn’t have to think of building a fiber room.
Me: Fair enough.

The picture above was taken earlier this week. It's a gladiola that I totally forgot about. I didn't even notice the stalk growing until the flowers were just about to open. What a nice surprise.

Smith thought about doing the same thing. Maybe they could have husband conventions while we're at the Fiber Festivals!

The Mr.M interview is complete & ready to post later this week...Did Bruce think you were off your rocker when you interviewed him?

Carole Knits said...

Great job, Bruce! I'm glad you remembered ME. LOL

I have loved reading these. I have yet to post the one I did. That is a lovely flower.

Understanding husbands are the best. Love the flower!
