"I thought there were just knits and purls?"

Those were the words of my boyfriend the other day as he watched me cast on my second Fawkes sock (okay, it's the third one but that's a whole other story...). We were talking about my knitting a few days previously and I had told him that there are just two stitches - knits and purls. He got me on a technicality though - casting on. He thinks he's pretty hot stuff because he knows what "turning the heel" means. Of course, he tends to ask if I'm turning the heel at random points in time now - no matter where I am in the sock. His new phrase is "closing the toe," learned while I was grafting the toe of Fawkes. He's a cute one. I'll have him knitting yet.
