Where has the time gone?

Posted on: July 4, 2010

Happy 4th of July to all my readers from the USA. I hope you have a lovely Independence Day.

It’s my wedding anniversary today. We’re married 12 years. I can’t believe it’s been that long. Time really does fly!

When I look back at our time together, we’ve achieved a lot. It’s been a bumpy ride, but we’re stronger for it.
Together we can achieve anything.
Alice got crafty yesterday. There was a card making demo in Inspiring Ideas, so off we went once I was finished in Mam & Dads. She got some great ideas, and the lady doing the demonstration was very good with her. Spent some time showing her how to improve.
With the result that I went home over €40 lighter.Surely now she must have enough stuff!
Anyway, filled with inspiration, she/I made an anniversary card for us:
I just love the Forever Friends teddy. So cute. And she outlined him with glitter. Life can never have too many sparkles.
I’m sadly lacking in bloggable knitting content. Dads vest is coming along (slowly) but I can’t blog about that. Alices sock is progressing too. I’m almost at the heel, but there’s no point in another orange sock picture, it looks the same as the last one lol!
So, that leaves me with no knitting pictures or content that I can talk about. Sorry!
I have been thinking though. As I’ve been making Dads vest, it has occurred to me how much I heart Elizabeth Zimmermann. She would have been 100 this year. Wouldn’t it be nice to pay some kind of tribute to her? The best thing I can think of would be something knitty of course.
If I could, I’d love to knit all of her patterns I have. A daunting task, there must be dozens & dozens of them. Still, it’s something to ruminate on whilst I plough on.
Maybe I should count them up before I get too carried away!
Good knitting!

Love the Taz ceramics.The card is cute too!

Ooh coincidence! I was thinking very similiar thoughts earlier this week! I thought of taking her Almanac and knitting right the way through it, in a separate blog.

Happy Anniversary! I think the card you made together is lovely. But honestly, do you really think she'll ever have enough crafting material? I mean… will you ever have enough yarn? lol
