{I promise NOT to knit you a scarf.... }

happy anniversary to us....
my heart is singing today
~
{I know.... I should have hearts or flowers or love things
up as my image...but this image touched my heart today....
the only time I ever tried to knit was when we were
first married...I tried to make my sweetie a scarf....
Big Mistake....I soon discovered knitting was not my thing...
it was one huge mess...but he wore it anyways...now that's LOVE.}

Happy A....

Come on. Just think how much wiser you are now with a few years behind you. I really think you should try again. Maybe, it was the needles and that you were not using a hook.

Enjoy your weekend, sweetie,

Lemonade on the deck, grab a glass and come visit me in the garden,

pollydove said...

I don't knit or crochet ... they both make me a little crazy. Those large "needles" are awkward for me, darn it. Because I do love the results!

And is that a little clay lion I see? I LoVe clay critters! I have a collection of them from a long time ago ... the cutest Alice in Wonderland set! :)

Happy Anniversary - have a wonderful day enjoying each other and celebrating YOU!

Libbie said...

Yes...that's a good man :) That is actually ALL I can knit...a stright scarf....and then nobody wears them :) So I have only done two...and they are sitting in the closet as proof that I did it :)

I keep thinking of your daughter & hoping she is feeling good. I will stop & say a special prayer for her right now!

Pansy Cottage Girl said...

That is too cute, true love!

Privet and Holly said...

Many happy returns of the day for you and for your sweetie! I think that knitting or crocheting....or sewing....heck anything that is made with LOVE is a precious gift and obviously your newlywed hubby realized that, many years ago. Proof that you snagged THE right one! May you have many more years of happiness, together.

Happy Anniversary to you & your DH! I had to laugh when I read about your scarf - I did much the same thing, only mine was a sock. (Note the singular use of the word 'sock'). According to the lady at the knitting store I could make a pair of socks in six months for his Christmas present - no problem. Hah. I knitted and I knitted, and I knitted and (well, you get the picture) and STILL only had ONE done in time. Never again will I attempt to knit him socks!!

Laura PARING DOWN said...

Hope this weekend is wonderful!

Happy anniversary! I tried knitting. It didn't work out for me. I stick with crocheting and keep it simple. I am granny-square impaired. Every time I try, I just can't seem to get it right. :/ Have a fabulous weekend. Tammy

Monica said...

Happy Anniversary (a day late). I hope your day was special. And I don't think you should give up on knitting after only one project. You just might like it this time around.

B said...

Oh crumbs, I'm late! I hope you and your sweetie had a glorious day. I'm dreadful at knitting too ;O)
