Stitching Status: Summer Knitting is On!

The month of May started off insanely hectic and busy for me but as the month is winding down I’m feeling a lot better about everything. My husband doesn’t have to travel for a while AND we’re taking time off starting tomorrow in celebration of our 15th wedding anniversary! I’ve got a 5 day weekend (Monday’s a holiday) with my favorite guy with reservations to some of our favorite restaurants and no real plans…well I do hope to get in a little knitting.

I’ve already started on my Durumi sweater, that I’ll be making into a tee. There’s only a tiny bit of colorwork in this one and somehow I managed to mess up the first row 3 times before I got my count right. LOL Good thing I have confidence now in ripping back stitches.

Yesterday I finished off the little bit of blue colorwork and I’m working my way to getting to fasten off for sleeves. This is going to be a pretty quick knit, which is great because the temps are definitely rising. I think I’ll make bottom ribbing my red orange color (remember that yarn from this sweater?) and the ribbing on the short sleeves will be the blue color. I’m also hoping that I have enough of the tan color leftover so I can make Jellybean a mini version of the Durumi sweater too because why not? Making tiny dog replica sweaters is hilarious to me. And speaking of dogs…
Me and the Bean
Whenever I set up the camera to take pictures for the blog (this was for my Dotted Rays) one or both of the dogs always makes their way over and pulls up on my leg demanding to be included. How can I not oblige? And since it’s our wedding anniversary tomorrow, here’s a flashback to May 24, 2003.

13 Years

No knitting talk today. I took the day off from work to have an early anniversary breakfast with the husband. Tomorrow marks 13 years of marriage and the first time we’ve been apart on our wedding anniversary  (duty calls for work!), so we’re spending a little time together before airport kisses goodbye. I can’t believe it’s been 13 years. It feels like we just said I do! I’m a lucky lady.

Have a great Monday!
