Fifteen years ago today, I was a beautiful, blushing bride.
Now I'm just an old fart.
I kid, I kid. I'm a MILF baby.
Happy Anniversary honey! I'm taking him out to dinner tonight at our favorite local wine bar and bistro. Oh crap! he reads this. I blew the surprise! Just kidding again. He knows we're going out to dinner.
I apologize for the lack of posts here. I haven't had anything thoughtful to say, and I hate just posting "Oh today I made sauce, and then the kids had soccer, blah blah." I've been knitting, and there isn't much on my needles yet but practice Krysten. I made a neat little swatch of 2 x 2 ribbing. Now I am making a triangle kerchief to work on increasing. My stitches are getting nice and even though, and I think I am ready for a real project. I used to knit when I was a kid, and once picked it back up when I was preggo with Biggest One in a fit of "nesting", so it came back pretty naturally. Trouble is I bought a bunch of yarn, and I can't find a suitable pattern for it that I can handle. I bought it to make a scarf out of "Stitch and Bitch", but it's just garter stitch and kind of boring, and the needles she said to use ended up making this loopy open thing... I bought smaller needles, I might try with those. Or, make a different scarf. I'd like to make a hat or mittens, but see that I need circle needles for those and I have no idea how to do that, nor do I have them or double pointed needles and I have been to the craft store like three times in the past week. LOL I have playing around on Knitty. Jobee, any hints on how to navigate their site to find beginner projects?
Off to get my nails done. Have to be pretty for dinner! TTFN
