Interview with a Nerd

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.

Nerd: No.

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.


Idea stolen from several places – but I think IrishEyes was first!

  1. I love it too! What a great idea! Might have to copy you on this one. Remember it is the highest form of flattery. Well, that’s what I tell my Grade 8s when they complain about someone stealing their ideas!
