the incredibly true conversation of 2 geeks in love

here's a little thing about me: i have a very hard time keepin a secret. ESPECIALLY when it comes to presents. I have ruined many birthdays, holidays, and special occasions with my inability to hold onto the surpise until the proper time.

of course, i couldn't resist showing D the scarf that i am making him for Valentine's day. He already saw the yarn when i spun and washed it and he knew it was for him. (it wasn't a huge, complex, surprise at least). It is, however, 2 weeks early. so goes my life.

(i show him scarf in progress)
DK: wow hon, that's really cool!
DM: do you recognize the pattern?
DK: is it exponential decay?
DM: no, but close....
DK: Its Fibonacci Sequence!!! i love it!
DM: aww shucks...

here he is modeling the work in progress. And for other geeks (knitting and/or math) out there... i made it up to the 55 section before running out of handspun brown.

That's just awesome. And the look on his face is priceless.

I am hugely impressed to see a FO based on Fibonacci, and just as impressed that the geekmale recognized it!

I think the thing that clinches it is spinning your own yarn to make it.
