Background: a pregnant friend sent me a pattern for a "baby cocoon" that she would like for her fetus, you know, in two months when it is external. It is knit with chunky yarn on size 15 needles, so I was all, yeah, no problem.
Me: Arrrrgh! I can't believe T paid money for this pattern! It's a tube! It's essentially a long hat! If she wanted a tube for her baby, she could have just asked me. I can make up that pattern as I knit! I mean, I guess a totally new knitter might want a pattern, but I don't need one. Grrrr...
Me: See, here's the picture. It doesn't even make room for the head. I'm gonna change it. I'm gonna add short-rows and make head space. It will be better. Everything is better with short-rows. I can't believe how stupid this pattern is.
Note: B gets subjected to these knitting rants a lot. I'm never sure how much attention he's paying. Until now.
B: (as he looks at the pattern notes) Well, it does call for Lion Homespun acrylic, so what do you expect?
Yup. My husband is a yarn snob.
