Ze Curse

Note to self: it is a bad, bad idea to have a discussion about knitting with the person you're not having a relationship with (it's very, very complicated) right before you both fall asleep. It may lead to the following exchange:

Me: I can't knit you a sweater, though. It's cursed.
The Flirtation (so called because I can't think of anything else, and heretofore referred to simply as 'TF'): Huh?
Me: There's a Boyfriend Curse in knitting.
TF: You're going to have to explain that one.
Me: Well, it's a well accepted phenomena that a knitter will knit a sweater for her boyfriend and then they'll break up.
TF: Oh.
Me: But, then again, we don't even have a relationship, so you're certainly not my boyfriend, so you should be safe.

*kicks self*

ah, ze curse. yessshhh. well, what about socks? socks have worked pretty well for me, thus far. we generally don't break up until long aaaaafter i've knitted their socks. sometimes even several pairs.
