Sometimes when I’m crocheting, folding laundry, hand sewing, or whatever I might be doing. I’ll look up to find that my husband is watching me. He will smile and go back to reading the newspaper or whatever he might be doing. One time he said, “Tamara, you are amazing.” I asked him what he was talking about and he said, “just the way you touch the things that you are working on; when you fold clothes you just fold them so fast and then before you put the item in the basket you have to run your hands over the fabric to feel of each piece, like you are enjoying the feel of the fabric. Then when you look at the project that you’re crocheting you study it and then you run your hand over it feeling the softness of the yarn.” He asked, “what are you thinking about?” I told him that sometimes I don’t know exactly what I’m going to make with each skein of yarn, but the yarn talks to me and lets me know what it wants to be. Then he started making up names for me and here are some of them:
The Medicine Woman
The Card Reader
The Fortune Teller
The Yarn Reader
The Yarn Whisperer (I think I came up with this one) teehee
Then he had a tip for me when I was making scarves for charity back in December. He said, “I’m not sure if anyone is interested, but “Gray” is the new neutral this winter.” I asked him if he had been reading one of my magazines and he laughed and said, “yes”. He makes me laugh!
He’s so funny; especially when he’s not even trying. For instance he gets words mixed up all the time. He told me not too long ago that there was a chance of participation. I laughed and said, “Do you mean precipitation?” The he asked me “What did I say?” HAHAHAHAHA
Then another time he was reading off some recipes in a newsletter and he said, “I can’t even fatom the idea of a spaghetti taco.” I just about died laughing. Anyway those are a few quotes and a tip about the new neutral from my dear husband.
I managed to get 4 more hats made and now I’m done with all the great nieces and nephews, and made 2 of my niece’s hats just for fun. I also sewed tags in all of them with my name and their names in each one, plus the date.
or this could be Coben’s?
and here’s Zane’s.
This weekend I plan on delivering a few of these. I hope to have pictures on Monday. Now I’m off to start the granny squares for Crochet a Rainbow. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
