The Ends of the Day

  We had another one of those "he doesn't get it" moments tonight... It's been a long day of finishing the squares for that baby blanket I started, and I continued to work on them right up until dinner time. With Rip van Winkle looking a bit annoyed that it was yarn and not food on the table, I decided to tidy up my mess.

  Picking up the pile of yarn scraps left over from the tails, I said: "I guess it's time to get to the ends of the day"... And he didn't get it at all. A perfectly corny joke about yarn ends went over his head without so much as a smile. But like we've discussed before, he's just not a yarn-y person. It's not his fault.

yarn, crochet, yarn ends, baby blanket, squares

  I wondered if I should let my lame pun fade away, but then I had to turn it into a blog post. An attempt at comedy may have failed, but it's not getting me down. Tomorrow will bring the joining of squares, and hopefully a finished project. And I'm still laughing at my own joke in my head. That's all that really matters, right?

Happy Crocheting!


  1. Hi Jenny, never mind.
    As you know I speak four languages and my husband still doesn't understand me... Sigh...
    Have a nice day,

    1. Marjan, you could speak every language in the world and he still wouldn't. We don't need science to tell us that men's brains are wired differently... We just have to live with one. Also, I find that most men speak the universal language of FOOD, and are more likely to listen if it is in front of them. ;)
      I've resolved myself to not let these things bother me, and I just laugh it off. Telling him a yarn joke is like... Well, it's just pointless.

  2. That's right Jenny you can laugh at your own jokes, not everyone can be as funny as you. Don't let others bring you down, I enjoyed your joke immensley.

    1. Lol! Thanks, Mary! I'm glad you liked it.
