Happy 26th birthday, hubby!

Yesterday was my hubby's birthday. He turned 26. Getting old, my old man! I got him an auto scanner. He's been very interested in fixing cars and engines lately. We are a handy-man and crafty-girl couple. :)
It took some work to convince him to take a picture commemorating his birthday. He hates it.

I also received a package in the mail - my Kim Hargreaves knitting pattern books.
They are gorgeous. I am already pondering what to make next.

Grade A knitting

While I waited for the yarn to be shipped in order to start on my sweater, I entertained myself with some instant gratification knitting projects.
Using colorful cotton yarn, I knitted a few dish rags as per Mason-Dixon Knitting. They turned out lovely.
And then one day I came home to find a box containing luscious yarn. I immediately started on the sweater (Cate, by Kim Hargreaves). The yarn is lovely to work with. I also found matching buttons for one dollar. Unfortunately you can't see how well they match on the picture below, since they are a bit shiny and reflect the flashlight.
I'll keep you posted on my progress. Can't wait to wear this.

I also want to take a moment to share with you that my smarty-pants husband (who is currently studying law) got an A+ on his midterm exam. He had the highest score in class.
We put his grade on the fridge. I am sooo proud of him. Congrats, honey!

Hang in there

This is to those of you patiently (sort of) awaiting my blog update (ahem, sister & best friend). It's coming. Hold your horses.

I am honored that you care to know the details of my mundane life, and I will satiate your needs. Check back tonight. I will have something for you (stalkers).

Love you guys for caring. And thank YOU (whoever you may be) for reading this blog. This experience is much more pleasant when there is an audience.

For now, I leave you with this:

Ahem... *cough, cough*
