While many of you may be enjoying yourselves at Rhinebeck (and of course, I’m not the least bit jealous) we are having a tiny celebration of our own. Today is our fourth wedding anniversary which we have dubbed the “wool and sheet music” anniversary. With a little one it’s hard for us to make any grand plans, but we have been indulging in a few of our favourite things. Delicious dripping poached eggs, good coffee, and pizza and beer at our favourite local pizza place.
We aren’t exactly the most romantic couple in the world. And if the length of marriages correlated with the size of the wedding then ours would have only lasted about a half an hour, based on our thirty second long union in the basement of the Cook County Courthouse (which we found so amusing). But I did want to show my appreciation to the man who puts up with my yarn buying and crazy ideas on a daily basis.
This is the appropriately named Scrap-happy Celebration Hat, using the generous leftovers from Drive Thru and also Andrea’s Shawl. I loved the simplicity of design, but it made an incredibly cool hat with all the different colours. The last light blue is a bit whimsical since I only needed a few rows to finish it. I could have used the yellow, but thought it a shame not to squeeze a little bit of that beautiful blue.
The best part is he loves it, and says he can “feel the love in every stitch”. I feel very lucky to be married to such a man, and hope to be knitting for him for many years to come. Happy Anniversary, D!
