Ketchup or Mustard?

I live with the most laid back person in the world. And paired with my high strung Type A personality, we seem to balance each other out. Luckily we "get" each other's eccentricities.

So when I tossed this odd-colored (for me) ball of Vanna White yarn at him, and asked, "Does this look close to the color of a corn dog?" he didn't miss a beat. Without asking why or looking at me like I'm insane or wondering why Vanna was pedaling yarn these days, he just answered that it seemed pretty close.

Oh Vanna

And it didn't seem a bit bizarre to him when he came home a few hours later and saw these sitting on the kitchen counter. He responded the same way he does about all my knitting that I force him to admire (and shower with adoration): "Cute." Showering adoration for him consists of that single word. Always.

Knit Corn Dogs

Of course, I know him too. So I know that his 13 year old sense of humor was smirking and his mind was racing with all of the dirty jokes he could have been making.

So I know what you are thinking. And the answer is: because I can. And honestly when I started thinking about knitting something to submit to the Iowa State Fair contest, the very first thing that came into my mind was this. Of course, I'm not sure that everyone (or anyone) shares my sense of humor.

I saw that the State Fair will be introducing some new foods on a stick this year. Of course, can't remember where I saw that or what the new foods were...
