Happy 20th!

I can't help but think of DH on the 20th of December!  We went on our first date 11 years ago! (in recent years we think it might have been the 19th due to a saved movie stub, but we've celebrated on the 20th for so long....)  It has been a joy getting to know and love my dear husband!  I never would have thought that night, that my coworker at the library would be my husband.  God is so good to me!

The last required Christmas knitting is done!  (actually done before Chicago, but....)
These are modified Broad Street Mittens from knitty.  I left off the mitten cover and added a few stitches to make it a little larger!  I used Knit Picks Essential in Cocoa.  While I'm not sure I would make these again....they were fiddly....I'm happy with the end result!

Speaking of Christmas....one of the ladies at knit night made these for all of us!

So very sweet and unexpected! and so needed....my stitch marker collection definitely needs enhancing!    Here are a few more Chicago pics for good measure!  Now Ashley cleverly noticed that there are no pics of LYS in Chicago....sadly I didn't make it to any....I know, I know.....we had every intention of going to one Tuesday night....directions were written out.....doable from the train.....hadn't counted on 5 inches of snow......so we stayed in.....I have plenty of stash....I know....how pathetic!

I didn't get to a LYS when I was in Denver either.... a touch of sadness but at least I saved money!

Happy anniversary!

I remember the day my husband and I first met too, March 21, 1980. I think that date is just as special as the day we got married.

God had/has a plan for you and your dh! It's good to look back and see how he worked out all the details for you two ~ have a wonderful Christmas and may he bless and prosper you in the times ahead!
