On Friday night, my dear boyfriend and I decided to go on a date that consisted of dinner at a pub and some skating at the public rink. (Yup, you heard me. We're still together despite the fact that I knit him a sweater. That dumb curse is nothing but a hoax).
The rink is next door to the high school that my baby brother went to, and while he is in Halifax to further that education of his, we thought that we would do a cheesy self portrait with my phone and text it to him. While I was hoping for a response that said 'WOW!!! That totally makes me homesick! Come and get me!', instead what I got back was a message that read 'Nice knitwear!'
Well...you know what?
Knitwear is nice.
And I just wanted you guys to know that we do actually wear our handknits.
I will not be held responsible for how he chooses to wear his hat
Yarn- Two balls of Smart.
Pattern- From an amazing hat book by Sandenesgarn (pattern #11)
Seriously? You don't know?
Yarn- Two balls of Zara.
Pattern- Pressed Rib Hat and Muffler by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.
What you can't see.
My new poncho that fits perfectly under my coat (which makes me love it even more)
My socks buried in my skates.
His socks bured in his skates.
So let's keep on keeping those loved ones warm people.
Especially if they actually wear the stuff we make.
