My bf occasionally picks me up from my knitting group and it's always a riot. We threaten to cozy his manly-man car all over and give him pretty gifts that he'd be guilted into having to wear...He thinks hand knits are feminine for some reason. He can't knit a consistant row, but yes, he can knit (shh, dont tell his buddies. Those buddies that secretly quilt with their wives).

So he's obseriving the group. I commented on my friend's scarf and he says, "You can do a k-table stitch, cant you?" so she explains to him that it's a knit through back loop. Then he looks at me and says, "So I take it you're not doing an eskapoo, are you" Needles started dropping in laughter. He was memorizing pattern abbreviations by the way they sounded. ktbl and skpsso were now k-table and an eskapoo. It was SO cute! I just had to share
