Husband Funny

Conversation between me and hubby (and a daughter):

".....go show you Dad your scarf and hat I finally finished.."

(she goes and gets them and returns)

"Wow honey!!! You should sell those! That is ....."

"You know I have a blanket over there I have to finish, a shawl over there, and......"

"Well why don't I have a hat like that?"

"You have a hat and a scarf I made you."

"Not like those...."

"What color?"


"So I have your permission to go buy more yarn?  I don't have any leftover in that color."

"Yes............I mean NO! One of these days I'll wake up and find yarn stacked to the ceiling....."

Ha ha ha ha ha!  So, he wants a hat and he wants it in a color I don't have. Hmpf.  Guess I'm buying grey yarn.....adding another "project" to the project list....

I'll be back to post more finished projects.

Well you know that yarn has an insulating value of R38...(not really but it does keep the outside walls of the crafting room pretty warm) LOL.
