Interview with the Nerdy Husband:
Lara: What is your favourite thing about my knitting?
Nerd: It makes you happy.
Lara: What is your least favourite thing about my knitting?
Nerd: Sometimes it takes you away from me.
Lara: What is something I have knitted, that you recall as good?
Nerd: The shawl that you knitted for my mother (Swallowtail).
Lara: Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
Nerd: Not excessively, no. There are plenty of more expensive hobbies.
Lara: You don’t spend much money on gaming, do you?
Nerd: Not since I cancelled my WoW subscription.
Lara: Do you have a gaming stash?
Nerd: Yes, a shelf full of gaming books.
Lara: Have I ever embarrassed you, knitting in public.
Lara: Do you know my favourite kind of yarn?
Nerd: No, it changes.
Lara: Can you name another blog?
Nerd: Yes I can. Web Goddess, Subversive Lesbian Knitter. Several.
Lara: Now, do you mind my wanting to stop at knit shops wherever we go?
Nerd: Mmmm. No.
Lara: Do you understand the importance of a swatch?
Nerd: (Laughs) Yes. From bitter experience. (He knits, but isn’t big on swatches, or patterns for that matter)
Lara: Do you read DiscoKnitter?
Nerd: Yes. What a silly question.
Lara: Have you ever left a comment?
Nerd: Yes. (in fact, he can comment without being moderated – it feels a bit intimate really!)
Lara: Do you the house would be cleaner if I didn’t knit?
Nerd: Only that there wouldn’t be a huge pile of yarn in the study, but you’d probably just collect something else!
Lara: Thank you for this insightful interview. Would you like to add anything in closure?
Nerd: Knitting is fun. Sometimes.
