Does everyone know about the Handmade Ryan Gosling meme by now? If not, you’re missing out!!
Obviously, the appeal is in having a hottie like Ryan Gosling be all sensitive and caring about your potentially off-putting craft hobby/obsession.
After a marathon session of Dr. Who and holiday knitting (wherein I forget to change out of my sweatpants for the duration of the weekend) or several nights upstairs cutting fabric for Etsy projects… a girl needs to know that she’s not totally alienating her fella.
I love sending these to David. I can totally imagine him saying this. He has a standing request for a cabled knit cardigan and every now and then I send him a flurry of Ravelry links to patterns and yarn colors I think he’d like.
And this…a hazard of sharing an office/closet with your crafting girlfriend.
New chest piece idea? Yes! Luckily, I totally don’t have to imagine all the time.
A friend of mine made me my own Handmade David magnets for Christmas. Luckily he was amused (I think) by them, rather than horrified. They live on our fridge and are a sweet reminder that even though the crafts can take over my/our lives, he’s still one of my biggest supporters.
PS. When David and I first met online, he told me that one of the things that he was attracted to was my assertion that I was a “kick ass knitter.” At least he (sort of) knew what he was getting himself into.
