The Men

This post is for the men in our fiber filled lives. Those men that put up with quite a bit that we may be too wool laden to see. Think about it, do your projects tend to explode all over your living room? There is usually limited seating or coffee table space for others and it may look something like this:

Or what about the yarn stashing? You know what I'm talking about, every little crevice is hiding your latest purchase.

Don't worry man, we may miss it time and again but we appreciate your patience and your ability to nod your head when we go off about loosely plied cotton or for looking the other way when we purchase our 18th sweater set-up to be stored for later. You are a gem in your own right.
