Me: Can I interview you for my blog?
Me: [e-mail him interview questions]
Him: Some of these answers are a tad tongue in cheek.
Me: Don?t you want to elaborate any on some of the answers?
Him: No thanks. I like to maintain a certain air of mystery.
Me: Fine. I?ll just fill them in for you. But I?ll make sure it?s clear who?s saying what.
Him: So you’re going to put words in my mouth and paraphrase and misquote and interject in my witticisms?
Me: Yes. Just like in real print!
Him: I thought you were going to say “yes, just like at home!” ;P
Me: I don?t know what you?re talking about.
So without further ado, the interview:
What is your favorite thing about my knitting?
makes you happy
What is your least favorite thing about my knitting?
Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
that’s an understatement
[I?m pretty sure he lumped in the spinning when he thought about this because really, it could be worse.]
[That would be collecting tikis and drinking beer. Not necessarily in that order.]
Do you have a stash of any kind?
Don’t bogart my stash dude
Have I ever embarrassed you, knitting in public?
Do you know my favorite kind of yarn?
the soft kind?
[This answer is actually correct. Except he forgot to mention my disdain for acrylic.]
Can you name another blog?
Do you mind my wanting to stop at knit shops wherever we go?
Do you understand the importance of a swatch?
I don’t think you do either, I’ve never seen you do one.
[Uh? I did one for that sweater!]
Do you read my blog?
Have you ever left a comment?
Do you think the house would be cleaner if I didn?t knit?
[We?re still training the Boy to take over all the chores. It?s slow going because he keeps needing stupid stuff like FOOD and SLEEP and can?t lift anything ?heavy.? I swear! Kids these days!]
Anything you?d like to add?
[Garrulous, this one.]
And there you have it.
