Hearts

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day! Scott and I normally don't do a whole lot on Valentine's Day, because who are we kidding.. every day we're in love! However, yesterday was a bit different: we exchanged a few little presents, Scott made me dinner, and of course, we were in the presence of yarn! You will never believe this, but part of Scott's present, was in fact, yarn! Better yet, HE said he is going to knit ME a hat with it (while I do a matching scarf). Go figure, they can be converted! He does know how to knit from all of the hours he spends glancing over at me, so the concept of a hat is very clear to him. Here are a few pictures I thought you would like :)





And, what do you all think of the new Interweave? I was very excited for this issue to come out since I saw lots of things I really loved in the previews. So, what are the things I just HAVE TO MAKE at some point? See below (though the skirt was just an add, my LYS just got the pattern in). There were four or five other patterns I really loved; however, they would not look good on me.

A really lovely post, Dani. You are very fortunate, he's a keeper. And hey, I haven't gotten my new IK yet, what's up with that?!

Great pics of you and Scott! I've been watching Thea knit up your self-striping and it looks fabulous! I'm so excited to see that hit the shop! Sorry to miss you over Xmas. May get to Knitsmiths over spring break!

Oh ... you are one very lucky girl!
I love the lace scarf too and have the same yarn in my stash. I also like the pink sweater using Patons Classic Merino ... and also have the yarn in my stash!

Mixed feelings about the IK. I always love an Evelyn Clark pattern, but what's with that 7-into-5 decrease? And I loved Kate Gilbert's circle sweater, but I fear it wouldn't do me any favors. Sigh. The shrug was oddly appealing (I think it's the fact that it actually looks warm, and not just ornamental) and I liked the aran cardigan that was the first pattern in the issue--though not its freakishly big cuffs.

I liked the new IK, but didn't find anything I absolutely had to make. Although, I'm fickle, so who knows what's down the road.

My IK came, but it is sitting here waiting for me to have 10 minutes to myself to actually look thru it... bleh!

You two are so adorable =) We did pretty much the same quiet night, sans gifts though. And the hat? What better expression of love than a handknit hat form your honey =)

PS _ Bloglines is showing me an adorable sweater and hat, but it isn;t here on your blog (which has been happening off and on with posts for a week or so now) It looks adorable from Bloglines, wish I could see the post!

COOL! What a very sweet thing for him to do =) -- Being in love everyday is always good, ain't it?

Oh that is just too cool. Now if only I could get my husband to want to knit, or even just buy me some yarn. I just love the pictures.
