Well, after focusing on finishing the Notre Dame de Grace Pullover (ravelry link), I needed the instant gratification that only big needles and chunky yarn could give. Pulling from the stash of leftovers, I cast on for EZ's Snail Hat (ravelry link). I really like this pattern because it is a simple form in nature and it is playful and has a sense of humor. It made me itch to start another project from Norah Gaughan's Knitting Nature. Amazon book link / knitting nature rav link.
Yesterday was Ameran's grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary. Wow. That's a crazy long time. I have been reflecting a lot about relationships in light of Valentine's Day and a bit of drama at the workplace. I think of all of the struggles and successes that we have had in 4 years and wonder what it will be like after we have been married for that long.
