Doctor Who Scarf Follow Along – Post Two – ProgressPosted: April 4, 2009
I am loving making this! I think I actually like the back side more where you can see the colors mixing with each other. I might take the picture from that side next time.
I think I would be much further along if I didn’t have to stop at each color change and wrap a new center pulling ball of yarn (can we say yawn). But in honor of all of the practice I am getting at doing this…there is a tutorial coming.
OK – he’s gonna kill me for this, but I have to share. My always interesting spouse is constantly popping out with doozies that I can’t share with the world because they are either way, way too wrong to share (as is half the stuff I say) or he would just kill me if I published it. But this, this has to be shared:
(Background, he is OBSESSED with owning new socks and belts, seriously, socks and belts – this is a decade long conversation, just with a new ending.)
Me: So – that shirt the mouse nibbled, I think we got the last one from Sears…we should get some more while we are out.
Him: We can get one this time and more next time we go out.
Me: Why would we come back, why don’t we get several now?
Him: ….Because that will be expensive…and…I want a belt.
Me: (laughing) You’re not getting a belt.
Him: But, (puppy eyes) I don’t have any more dress belts, except one. (Side note he is wearing his “nice” pants on a random Saturday because he doesn’t feel like jeans today.)
Me: You’re not getting a belt. (Lot’s of laughing at him by now.) We’re here for shirts, your belts are fine.
AND THEN THE COUP DE GRACE
Him: Hey – I grew up poor…I have embraced the metrosexual! I need a belt!
– We both explode into laughing.
I can now add this to the list of things I never expected my born-in-the-sticks husband to say – Brilliant. You let them get one taste of good clothes and they can’t go back. He went from beng a Perry Ellis wearing store manager to a jean and slogan T-shirt wearing grad student…sometimes now he just wants to feel pretty again…don’t we all…
No belt was purchased on this day. 🙂
