I Want to Knit

(today's word chosen by Yannick)

It was 6 years and 1 month ago that a wee little bumble bee flitted around her little world, merrily minding her own buzz-ness. Then Billy Idol walked into her life and she thought "Damn, I'd wear my sunglasses at night for him!" He, too, was smitten, and once out of their Hallowe'en costumes they still found their secret identities of Yannick and Jennifer appealing. One month later, on December 1st 1998, they were officially an item.

I guess today's word is apropos, 'cus I can really look back and says "It's only been 6 years?" It feels like so few, and yet a veeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrry long time, all at once. It hasn't always been easy crafting for this guy. There was the knitted sweater, supposed to be my first gift to him. I narrowly avoided the Sweater Curse by getting fed up after doing half of the back. Apparently there is no Crochet Sweater Curse, 'cus we're still here. Now the proud recipient of a sweater (begun in 1999, taken apart and restarted more than once but finally completed in 2004), a pair of socks (one of which is still otn), and a bed cover (which my mother may or may not still be in the process of ripping back. A 6' x 10' blanket is NOT A GOOD THING) plus many other gifts that aren't fiber-related, he's just agreed to attempt to learn to knit so he can make me something in return. That's love.

Happy Anniversary Angel.

p.s. I'm aware I didn't post yesterday. I have my reasons.
