This could be a Six Word Saturday heading!
My DH is not usually known for diplomacy, he's too blunt and direct. But over 30 years of marriage has taught his a few things.
My first seamless sweater, knit in a bulky wool/acrylic blend - more of a test than anything as the yarn was not expensive and I'd never knit in the round before. And of course, I knit loose and forgot to continually check my guage, hence the bulky sweater. Which I made a nice scarf and toasty hat to match with the leftover yarn.
I tried to Shrink this sweater but since it has acrylic in it, it ain't changing shape at all.
My question to him this am.
"What do you think about this sweater"? (I had it on. I know it doesn't look good. Wouldn't you think I'd have learned something after 30 years?)
As soon as the words were out of my mouth I regretted them. I braced myself for the blunt "no".
What I got was " well, the arms are slightly different lengths and without shoulders it makes your shoulders look a bit droopy, and it has no waist so doesn't show yours, but - it's not bad"
He got a kiss.
And the sweater set....might just go to a worthy cause.
