The siren call of a new challenge is something I find irresistible, so I was delighted when recently Louise sent me yarn, needles and a selection of patterns for knitted dishcloths. I'm a very beginner in the knitting game, but there's nothing I like better than a challenge. So I was happily partaking of this little crafting treat when the following conversation happened:
Hubby: Why are you doing that?
Me: It's that dishcloth kit I showed you.
Hubby: No, I mean knitting.
Hubby: Well, it's just not sexy is it.
Clearly the whole 'pinny porn' debate has passed over his head. You can hear the start of it on this podcast.
Don't worry, I shall punish him for heretical thoughts, by making him apply said dishcloth to the dishes for the foreseeable future. Actually, on second thoughts, it may be too good to waste on him.
He's worried about hate-mail, but it looks like he's not the only doubting Thomas. And I'm getting my own back on Sunday when I am escaping for the whole day for some knitting and stitching goodness at Alexandra Palace. And guess who's looking after the boys! Have a great weekend.
