Appreciation is Key
He wears the projects I make him. He treats them with respect and takes care of them. He tells everyone that I knit them.
This is the ultimate thanks a knitter can get. A project that sits in a closet not being used is a waste of good yarn and quality knitting time.
Granted I am doubly blessed. In the knitting world, size does matter. Matt's 37" chest and 5'5" height makes knitting for him not as daunting as for me (ya... so not a 37" chest).
In the 21 years I've been knitting, he's lost a total of one glove. Only one sweater had an accident (a small hole that I could fix if I had more of the yarn). That's a pretty impressive record.
So thanks honey for appreciating my hand knits. You deserve a new sweater.
