Yesterday, Matt and I celebrated our one year anniversary! A year ago yesterday, we decided that we didn’t want to see other people and we decided on the official “couple” status. It feels like it’s been longer and shorter at the same time. I feel like I’ve known him much, much longer than a year, but it seems like it’s not possible a year has passed so quickly. A year ago, I wouldn’t have though my life could be as good as it is, but life IS good! It’s been a great year and I’m looking forward to another great one!
Since getting yarn in the mail, I’ve been dying to start the Rainy Day gloves, but I told myself I would get this scarf done first. I just know if I were to start another project, it would be months before I wanted to go back to this scarf and I don’t want my sister to have to wait until summer for her scarf! So here is it’s current state:
Okay, well, mostly it’s current state. There are actually 5 stripes of each color now and I’ve started strip number 6 of the burgundy. Just over half way. I’m thinking it might not be long enough, though. We’ll see how long it is when I’m done with the 10 burgundy and 9 gold stripes.
Yesterday, I spent time catching up on episodes of Ugly Betty and watched a few of the Knitting Daily TV show. While watching TV, I worked on the scarf while waiting for the Gable sweater to be washed and dried. Yes, I took a big leap and threw it in the washer and dryer!! Yes, I was scared! It turned out fine, though, and I added the pretty wooden buttons to it. I have to say that it’s MUCH softer after being washed. I will also say not to was it with towels. No idea what I was thinking other than having something else in the washer with it since I can’t control the water level (coin operated washer/dryer in our apartment). I had to pick off a lot of fuzz and I’m still picking off bits of towel from it. Ah well, lesson learned, right? I don’t have the best picture of it with buttons, but here’s a decent photo of what the sweater looks like with buttons:
Not much else going on with the knitting besides that scarf now. Maybe I can finish it this week so I have more interesting things to show you… like some Rainy Day gloves!
