All of us know what a kilt is right? And, we all know the story about what kilt wearers wear under their kilts, right? OK - stay with me here.
My husband, Mr. Knit Witch, has informed me that he will be going to Stitches South wearing a kilt. Ummm. OK. First of all - he does not own a kilt and he certainly knows better than to expect me to make one for him (anyone ever seen a pattern for a knitted kilt?). So, that would be the first obstacle and my first reason for laughing.
Secondly, and I think this point is obvious, WHY? Honestly. We aren't Scottish, we aren't Irish, we have never been to those places, he does not know how to play any bagpipes or any Irishy type instruments so again...........why?
I'm not sure I have received an answer to this. I'm not sure if the goal is to wear a kilt or to wear nothing under the kilt. Is it an attention-getter? Is is a conversation piece? Is it so he will "make it big" on Ravelry with a gazillion pictures of some random knitter and himself in a kilt? Is this to be Knit Witch's new logo?
So, he brings it up again this morning. He has brought this up several times so he must be somewhat serious. Again, I ask him why and he tells me, get this, that he thinks it is cool. Oh, and he wants to do it to be different and comfortable. So, there ya have it folks. At Stitches South there is a possibility that my husband will be super cool, be different AND be comfortable all at the same time.
Now, who's going to get in line to get that picture taken with him to be plastered all over Ravelry?
Shall I start a poll on this? Like - who here thinks Mr. Knit Witch should show up at Stitches South working our booth in a kilt? KateyJ - no need for you to comment - I already KNOW where you would stand on this issue!! :)
He sent me these pictures as if to prove to me that men in kilts are both super cool as well as humorous. Don't scroll down with your boss standing over your shoulder. I gotta admit - the first guy does look pretty cool, don't ya think?
