My next husband is going to be a smaller man. Like, midget size. Seriously. I'm knitting his holiday gift. I'm trying to surprise him. That means I can only knit when he's not home. Ok, I'm home alot. It shouldn't be a problem, right? No. The Boy "helps" mommy knit, which means I'm constantly pulling yarn or needles out of his fingers, mouth, and nose. So I wait for him to nap. That means I have about 2 hours daily to handknit a sweater for a man who is 6 plus feet tall.

Tellin' ya, my next husband is going to be a gold fish.

And just like many, many other knitbloggers, I've been bitten by the spinning bug.

Thank god for the library.

Now if I could just find a wheel, we'd be all set.

And all you who read my blog- I know who you are! I wanna see your quirks! Post them in your own blog and pass it along, will ya?

Hmmm still thinking about the quirks, but have you thought of using a drop spindle to spin? YOu can make one out of a cd and a piece of dowel! My son (age 4) LOVES the drop spindle and "helps"

Man projects intimidate me a little too. I was going to make my dad a pair of socks, but then I thought about how many skeins of fingering weight I'd need for his size 11 feet, and the size 1 needles, and started to wince. I'll have to do it in a six ply yarn one day.

My perks are up, if you would like to read them.

I second the drop spindle suggestion. My dream wheel is a Wyatt great wheel, but in the meantime I'll use the drop spindle I made a few weeks ago.
