So my wife knits, which is a pretty cool thing. I think I’d be impressed by it even if I weren’t completely incompetent with knots. At summer camp when we were given colored cord to make lanyard keychain and I ended up tying up my friend Dale who was sitting on the opposite side of the table.

These two pairs are especially cool. Doctor Who fans will recognize the design of the ones on the left and Pink Floyd fans will understand why the ones on the right are a design is called “Dark Side Of The Moon”, and it’s amazing how much those two groups overlap, and she knows she married a geek, but that’s another story.
