A to Z 2019 April Blogger Challenge - The Letter K In My Space

It's April - That means I will be participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge.

I will be posting six days a week for the month of April - (with a rest day on Sunday).
Each post will begin with the corresponding letter of the alphabet beginning with A and finishing with the letter Z.

I began participating in this challenge in 2012.   With the exception of last year, I believe I completed the challenge each year.   Last year I lost steam somewhere around the letter W.


Of course my K word is Knitting.  It takes up space in my our life.  Yes, knitting also takes up space in Ross' life.  Or I should say our together life. 

In his own way Ross is involved in my knitting.  

I find it endearing that he pays attention to what I'm knitting.  
"What's that going to be?" he'll ask.
Or he'll try to guess, "A pair of socks?" 

Sometimes, when I get frustrated with a project to the point where I will rip it out, he'll gasp and say "You're not taking the whole thing out, are you?"  
He's always shocked when I do that and he always says the same thing.

He comes yarn shopping with me most of the time.  As he follows me up and down the aisles, he will occasionally  pick up a skein and ask, "What about this one?"  
He hasn't quite gotten the the fact that yarn comes in different weights, so he shops for yarn by color.
His color pallet taste is different than mine.  He likes the grays, navies and tans.  
I like all the other colors.
Once he realizes that I'm going to be awhile and that I'm not going to buy that gray yarn, he'll find a chair to sit on and pull out his kindle.   He is very patient.

Together we have been to many yarn festivals.  Yes, for those not familiar with the knitting world, there is such a thing as a celebration of yarn and the animals that give it to us.  
Mainly, though a yarn festival is a way for all creators of anything having to do with knitting and crocheting to congregate and show off their wares and hopefully sell then too.

 Ross takes part in my knitting YouTube podcast, which is called "Joey's Scarf."  He will pop in at the end to say hello.  He does have a fan base. 😉

I like to show off my accomplishments.  He is my photo shoot photographer.

Since he genuinely seems interested I thought he should learn to knit. 

Apparently he is more comfortable on the periphery of my knitting space.

Dear Ross, 
If you happen to read this post, and in case I have not told you this before, I love that you are in my space, whatever space that happens to be.
Happy Birthday!! Love, 💕


  1. Happy birthday, Ross.

    I always miss using K for knitting. It should be obvious. But no. Today I used Key Battle.

    1. I almost forgot also. And to tell you the truth I thought twice about doing a Knitting one because I already talk a lot about knitting. But...

  2. Happy birthday Ross! You guys make a great looking couple. I think you should show him the blog today if he doesn't stumble upon it himself. He seems like a winner if he is willing to accompany you on your knitting adventures!


    1. Thank You Betty. He did see the blog and thought it was sweet :)
