He's a big stinker who refuses to be photographed. I have a lot of pictures of the back of his head. There are species of fierce and elusive snakes that are more open to having their pictures taken.
I am crazy in love with my husband. Seriously, it should be in the DSM.
He requested that I make him a Half-Pipe Hat from the new Debbie Stoller Son of Stitch and Bitch book. He won't model it, so I had our daughter do it at the breakfast table today.

Enjoy my (self) award-winning bathroom mirror photography…
This is the oldest sweater I have in my wardrobe. It's not the prettiest, but it was my first design. It's my favorite. I used Lamb's Pride. If it weren't so itchy, the yarn would be my favorite, too. I love the texture. I almost love the fuzz. I don't love the prickle. I always wear a long sleeve tee under this sweater.
I love twisted stockinette, but I don’t recommend it for stripes because people will constantly try to straighten your sweater for you.
The star is a crochet motif. Had I known I would grow up to be a stay-at-home-mother, I would never have made such big sleeves. I end up rolling them up because I drag them through everything.
I wear this sweater more than anything I’ve ever made. It’s a junky, sweatshirt style and I don’t mind cleaning house or kneading bread while wearing it. (At least we know the source of the purple hair in the dinner rolls.)

We live a modest life. My husband's military salary is our only income. We decided that I should stay home and keep house. We aren't poor, but we don't waste money. When I have something nice, I take good care of it.
