Quickie Question: Romantic Crafting

By Twistie

Today is a red letter day at Casa Twistie: it’s our eighteenth wedding anniversary.

And it suddenly occurs to me that after a quarter century together and eighteen years of legal bliss… I have never made a really crafty gift for Mr. Twistie. Not one. Then again, he’s never written me a song, either, so nyaah! And it’s not like I can see him really getting thrilled about a bobbin lace microphone cover, anyway.

I’ve cooked him special meals, certainly, and done creative things that don’t bear airing in a family-friendly blog. But I’ve never made something just for him.

But I’m curious, what about all of you? Have you made any crafts projects for a significant other? Your current SO? Do you have any plans to do so? Care to dish about it here?

    I have knit Mr. Evil two scarves and two hats during the 8 years we’ve been dating/married. Unfortunately, he is hot natured, and we live in Atlanta. His opportunities to wear the items are pretty limited to when we visit my family in Pittsburgh over the holidays.

    My cooking and baking are much more popular with him :)

    I’ve knit My Hero a sweater and a couple of pairs of socks, and he’s knit me a couple of pairs of socks in return. Though to be honest, one was just a pair he’d made for himself that came out too small.

    Mr Carol gets dinners and baked goods regularly. He has also received several Valentine’s Day wall quilts and is about to get himself a blue and white log cabin quilt for our bed. I hope he shares that one…
