Knit Night - great for the destash of...

...all sorts of things!

Although it is not unusual to destash knitting and spinning things at a knit night, I have noticed that we seem to be extending the repertoire of things that we are moving on to new homes at my local knit night in Vancouver.

For instance, we have recently had the detash of a silk screen printing kit. Okay, that is still crafts related and not really way out there. So, to 'up the ante' a little bit, here is evidence of the latest destash to be agreed at 64th/Granville in Vancouver:

With my apologies in advance for the blurry photos (there was a lot of laughter in low light conditions) and to the destash recipient as I have applied artistic licence to my recollection of the dialogue!

Neighbour: Excuse me young lady? This is an apartment building, not a marina - what exactly do you think that you are doing?!

Destash Recipient (DR): Oh, hello neighbour. We are just trying to shoe horn a sea kayak (canoe) into my apartment. Really, nothing to see here, nothing to see!

Fella [a muffled voice from inside the apartment]: Um, DR, I don't think that we are going to get this in? Unless you want to put it in your bathroom?

DR: Possibly that's not the best idea, let's try to get it into the hall another way. Okay, bring it back out and up into the stairwell!

Fella: Okay...um DR, you know, I really don't think that it is going to turn the corner into your hall? It would fit in your bedroom though..?

DR: Darn it, I did sort of tell my boyfriend that I wouldn't put it in our bedroom. After all, he said when I phoned him, "What?! You are adopting a kayak?! Where's it going to go?!"

I mentioned the bedroom and he wasn't very keen on the idea so I told him that it would go in the hall...(thinks for a moment)

...oh well, never mind!

Fast forward to later, as imagined in my mind:

DR: Hi honey, you are home!

Boyfriend: ....?! (stunned silence)

DR: Isn't our new bedroom feature great?! It really adds that certain 'je ne sais quoi' touch of perfection to our Pacific West Coast Home Decor arrangements! Um - just try not to trip over it in the night, okay?
