I completely forgot this part

When I told the Fool I was going to this goofy Naughty Knitting Night, he said, "What are you going to knit?"
I had no idea, so I said, joking, "I'm going to make you an argyle willie warmer."
"You are?" he said. "Are you sure you can get that done in one night?"
I blinked.
"You've got a healthy opinion of yourself, don't you?" I asked.
"I mean," he said, flustered, "Argyle is intarsia and that takes a long time!"

I tried this story on a Muggle, and he just looked at me blankly and said, "What's the punchline?"

and now I think that an argyle willie warmer would be a great way to practice intarsia. Darn you! :)

Snrk! That's deeply funny.
At knit night Wednesday, someone asked one of the very experienced knitters when she learned to knit. I leaned over and stage whispered "well, they still called it nalbinding then" and we all giggled. Got home, told Mathboy of the conversation . . . and then had to explain the history of knitting. It's fun to perplex muggles.

A healthy ego is a good thing for a man to have. Keeps him lively, if you know what I mean and I think you do!

My knitting groups are so boring. . .

As I was knitting the squid hat at Pigtown, I was asked about the strangest knitted thing I had ever made. I was forced to admit that I'd made a willie warmer. :)
