Interview with a Belorussian Drug Dealer*

Thank Karen for today's posting. I saw her interview and instantly decided to torture Felix.

Here goes..

Me: What is your favorite thing about my knitting?
Felix: You enjoy it so much.

Me: What is your least favorite thing about my knitting?
Felix: The fact that you're incredibly obsessed with it sometimes.

Me: What is something I have knitted, that you recall as good?
Felix: My socksies.

Me: Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
Felix: Yes. Good wool costs a lot.

Me: How much is all your DS/Wii equipment?
Felix: Overall, they're somewhat expensive.

Me: Do you have a stash?
Felix: Yes.
Me: What is it?
Felix: Comic books.

Me: Have I ever embarrassed you, knitting in public?
Felix: No.

Me: Do you know my favorite kind of yarn?
Felix: Trick question, don't have a favourite kind. (Grandiously) You love all equally.

Me: Can you name another blog?
Felix: Two Swallows. Knitty doesn't count? Knitty's a magazine, not a blog, really.

Me: Now, do you mind my wanting to stop at knit shops where ever we go?
Felix: (Hesitation) No. I don't mind if it's one or two, but if you want to stop at all of them by the end of the day it gets a bit tiring.

Me: Do you understand the importance of a swatch?
Felix: Yes. It allows you to gauge whether you're getting the tensioning right.
Me: (Hysterical laughter) You've just guessed, haven't you? The words "tension swatch" and "gauge swatch" are what you've heard me mention, and you're just making stuff up now!
Felix: (shrugs and grins)

Me: Do you read Let Me Knit?
Felix: Yes. Normally when you tell me there's something new on there.
Me: So not often then?
Felix: I guess.

Me: Have you ever left a comment?
Felix: No. Because I figured I could just say "That's awesome"...

Me: Do you the house would be cleaner if I didn't knit?
Felix: No, because I'm an incurable slob, so it wouldn't matter if you didn't knit or not.
Me: True dat.

Me: Anything to add for my long suffering readers?
Felix: I love my wife very much.

* Felix's passport photos make him look like a Belorussian drug dealer. Not that we'd know.

It's all lies!!! Lies, I say! Except the bit about my photos, they look like they belong on a passport for Igor Strslanovich.

Karen said...

Awwww, I love it!!!! He's quite awesome as Belorussian Drug Dealers go. LOL

And what is that I spy? His first comment to your blog? Hurray!!!!

Speaking as an ex-boyfriend, I can vouch that that style of interview brings back buttocksquirming memories. Like a ball of wool trying to dodge a wise old cat!
