Absolutely. He loves that I'm an artist and pushes me to further myself. Keep in mind that he is also a knitter and pattern designer.

Yes. Because it keeps me busy. Also he thinks it is amazing that I can turn a ball of yarn into something awesome.

Yes, for a few reasons. It's something I love, so he encourages that. I make cool stuff for the house and, cheap gifts for people. Plus, when I crazy at night he plays his videos games so we are both busy with something we like doing.

 Yes, I make him stuff too and he will use some as gifts. He tries taking credit(jokingly). He thinks I should make lots so we can have a booth at a craft fair.

Not as much as he used to but that's probably because he was away.  The first 2 yrs of our marriage we spent 18 months apart ((thanks Army :/)).  Now that he is home, he prefers my attention while we're watching TV or something instead of my nose being buried in my craft.  I try to get some done while he's at work but a toddler and newborn limit my time severely!   I wish he would be a little more supportive.

Yes, my hubby is supportavie even if he gives me a hard time when I show up with a new project and have not finished the piles I have sitting around the house :) He like to play computer games so he sees it as a way for me not to nag about him being on the computer :)

That is a hard adjustment - being apart and getting into your own routines and then having to learn to live together again and still do things yo ulove. Can you both agree to a night or two of together time without either one doing something and then have the other nights to craft?
