Happy Anniversary to Us!

Today is our anniversary. 9 years being married, 12 together. Wow... that sounds like a long time but really, it's not. I can see how people stay married for 40 years and think nothing of it.

Tonight, we're going out for sushi. My first time! I'm very excited as we haven't had a dinner out with just the two of us in ages. Ages! Next year, God willing, we hope to do something special... maybe a trip or cruise.

Have a great evening everyone! Thanks for stoppin' by! I'm off to eat sushi!

Simple socks and Aeolian Progress

Hello! So, it's been a little while but there has been knitting. I've completed a pair of pink varigated socks made with some Lorna's Laces shepherd sock yarn in the colourway Sherbert. They were very quick knit and she's so happy to have them. This picture really does not do the socks justice as I took them with my 2 megapixel cell phone camera. They are a beautiful colour nonetheless! They are ribbed and plain stockinette stitch all the way. I've promised my son a similar pair but in a blue varigated colourway (I forget the correct name and I'm tres sleepy so don't hold it against me - LOL!)

Here they are:

Next is the Aeolian progress with an equally horrible shot. I hope you can work your imagination around this one and see how lovely it really is! The yarn is so thin but it is knitting up pretty nicely. The beads are so pretty too! They go well together thank goodness. Maybe I'll get an awesome camera for my birthday and I'll be able to take better pics and show you. Hopefully also, I should be closer to finishing it by then! This is a big shawl! Gorgeous but big.

Here she is:

I'm still going at my other projects, thanks for asking and have made some serious leeway on the raglan leaf tee. I gotta learn to knit faster!!! This is just stockinette for the most part... maybe that's my problem right there. Too boring. Love the material that's being worked up though. I will pick back up my deep v argyle vest too. Then I won't feel so badly about pushing on with the Tussie Mussie cardigan. I will want some smaller projects to keep me sane through all this lace and stockinette!

On a non-knitting note, I've done some serious damage to my lappy's LCD screen and was very down about it. I hope it doesn't cost as much as the laptop to replace!

Happy knitting all. I'm wiped from my walk this afternoon and from a very emotional day after getting some sad news.

Until next post...
