Well, I did! Even without prior knowledge I might add since I started to knit like a crazy person after we said our vows. He also reads Harlot, knows what all my knitterly blog friends are working on at any one time, enables pure Olympic craziness and has memorised grafting instructions which he recites as I graft my socks closed! But yesterday, he did something even more astonishing.
Yup, he's sewing up a knitted hem! I was lamenting that it was taking forever, showed him what I was doing and he volunteered to finish it for me. And he did. And he did a really neat job too! Astonishing, eh? Back off ladies, he's spoken for ;0) I watched in awe for a little while, but had to go feed the little guy who was starting to literally eat my skirt! What a cutie! When Julian and I were done, so was the finishing on the baby kimono! What a great trick.
I finished knitting up the sleeves during Conan O'Brian late last night and hemmed them. Then this morning as I got ready to photograph it for you all I noticed this:
Darn photos! Notice the shorty sleeve? Of course I noticed it after sewing it up hem and all and super neatly weaving in all the ends. Argh! I took a little break from it and was able to fix it during Julian's afternoon nap. It wasn't as frustrating as I expected it to be. Now all I need to do is think of a way to finish up the neck band and to fasten it. I need to "cute-ify" it. Maybe a bunny ear hat?
I'm on it ;0)
