I agree 100%. It matters to me, especially after 30 years of marriage, that my mate is not only supportive but he's out there advertising for me (almost to the point of embarassment).
On the other hand, we went out to dinner with another couple the other night and when the wife commented that the next day she was going to a painting class, her husband commented that she was 'going out to push her little brush around' (just caught a typo: I almost posted 'push her little bush around'. Whole different meaning!). Now them's fighting words. If a man demeans anything I do, I don't want him.

Wow...I totally have the enabler husband too! He loves going with me to buy more yarn and will even ask when we are out doing errands," need any more yarn or knitting stuff?" Or my favorite, when I think I am done finding what I need, "do you need anything else, or is that all for now?" (and NOT in a sarcastic way!) Man...I love that guy.

My guy is totally an enabler, too. He asks me about projects all the time, and he even showed me a faster way of measuring and cutting fringe pieces! He doesn't really like the little bits of yarn that seem to get everywhere, though. He thinks everything I make is nice, which is good, because I think everything he makes (he can make some beautiful stuff with wood and steel - *bragging* he cut, curfed, welded, sanded, grinded, and painted our bedframe out of steel and someone who saw it offered him $800 for it!) is nice, too!

"if you are going to marry me,
here's what you must do.
You mustlearn to make a perfect chicken dumpling stew.
You must develop the knack for scratching my back,
and keep my shoes spotlessly shined.
When it is raining or snowing you must shovel the walk,
And be still when I talk,
and,
hey! where are you going?"
walk out the door and don't look back dear he really isn't worh it.

I guess I'm lucky. DH wears the sweaters I've made him although I did have to take one away and frog it since it was worn out and he was wearing it so he wouldn't wear out the new one that was as near to just like it as I could make it. He has half a houseful of photographic equipment and matted photographs plus a darkroom in the basement. The other half of the house is full of yarn and projects.
