Husband Interview

So this interview was on another fellow bloggers page & I thought it would be interesting to "interview" Ricky about some things & his responses - here's a peek into my world:

ME: What is your favorite thing about my knitting?
Ricky: It takes time away from you yelling at me .....(he says with a mischevious grin - I can already see how this is going to go)

ME: What is the least favorite thing about my knitting?
RV: Money ....(He says this before I even get the question all the way out) Your yarn is way too expensive.

ME: What is something I have knitted that you recall is good?
RV: Your lace shawl......(He actually had to sit for a minute & think - I dont know if he was going through projects that I've done - or actually just tried to remember one. But he did say when I finished that one that he did like it)

ME: Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
RV: Just a grunt of laughter...then an "Absolutely"

ME: Do you have a stash of any kind?
RV: A stash? I dont knit
Me: I said of ANY KIND
RV: No - I dont stash anything
ME: Oh please - I can think of things right now
RV: Like what?
ME: Oh - we just have 200 flashlights around the house for no reason?

....The conversation goes on for quite a few minutes how he doesn't stash flashlights. Let me tell you - the man is insane for flashlights! There aren't enough batteries in the world to keep all our flashlights going!....This conversation lasts even longer....moving on!

ME: Have I ever embarassed you knitting in public?
RV: No - you've not embarassed me doing that....(I'm getting that I've embarassed him in other ways though)

ME: Do you know my favorite kind of yarn?
RV: (With a gloating smile....) PERSIAN
ME: What is Persian? I like Alpaca!
RV: That's what I meant!

ME: Can you name another blog?
RV: Another blog.......(what a smartie!)

ME: Do you mind my wanting to stop at knit shops?
RV: Yes...No...Not all the time....It depends.....(by "it depends" - it means if there are stores or some place around he can go to or something he can do while I'm in a knit shop)

ME: Do you understand the importance of a swatch?
RV: The watch? ......( um...apparently not)

ME: Do you read my blog?
RV: No - I dont have to - I live with you - I hear enough from you as it is

ME: If I didn't knit - what would be different?
RV: I would be getting yelled at even more ....(I'm yelling at him for that comment)

ME: Anything else you would like to add?
RV: You go girl with your knitting!

And ladies & gents - that's my husband right there! A little look into my life with the man I've been with for 16 years!!! (God - give me strength) hehe!!


  1. That is the coolest idea!

    I felt like I already knew how the answers were going to turn out though! 8)

    Ricky - You're the man!

  2. Hahaha, I truly felt like I was sitting in the room listening to this conversation. Wow, how much that sounds like my husband... I may have to do this interview and compare notes.

  3. That was funny!! Thanks Ricky for an early morning chuckle!

  4. I am suprised that one of his answers weren't WEML (only the way Ricky can do it though)

  5. PERSIAN?????!!!!! I think that answer alone should mean that he must spend more time in a yarn shop so that he can at least know what you like to knit with!!! A full day tutorial on the different types of yarns, various colorways, actually hand painting yarns so that he gains a true appreciation of the art form....

    Evil aren't I?????

  6. The flashlight thing cracked me up!


I am thankful for each comment & like to respond to every one of them....
