I have some WIPs! That aren't Pomatomus!
First up, there's the scarf I'm knitting for my One Skein secret pal. Since I'm not really all that in love with the One Skein book, I chose the Airy Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. What a quickie knit! I'm feeling kind of guilty about how fast and how little yarn this one is using, so I think I'll whip up a second one in a different mohair for my pal. A girl can always use a couple of airy scarves.
Then, I also cast on for my July socks. I'm doing the Madder Rib socks from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks. The Lorna's Laces is beautiful to knit with and there's not a ktb in sight! Yahoo!
And finally, in terms of a personal WIP, today marks my fifth wedding anniversary. Five years since Aaron and I said "I do" in the middle of a beautiful mountain valley. In those five years we've been to Toronto and back, owned two houses (well, as of noon today) and created the craziest little lady we know. Sometimes I think I'm still in the rock club that I first spied Aaron in about seven years ago (well, not counting the show I saw him play when I was about 17) and I've just blinked my eyes and imagined our entire life together. Sometimes I think that Toronto was just a dream and that I'm still 26 years old. Where does the time go?
