Swatching for a new design

I have had this one in my head for quite some time. I finally started knitting swatches last night and the design process is on its way! I am hoping to have a rough draft of the pattern in a week or so and will need some test knitters.

10 Years

On July 20th Paul and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. After months of discussion on what we should do we decided on a nice and cheap local date. Dozens of nice restaurants were discussed but in the end we decided we didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a meal. What mattered more was being together and reflecting on that day and our 10 years together.

We were married on what was possibly the nicest day of the summer. There were barely any clouds, the sun shone all day and it was nice and warm. Perfect weather for the outdoor reception we had planned.

The weather on our anniversary was not as perfect as our wedding day but nice enough for a picnic at the spot where Paul proposed. We grabbed delicious panini at Husky Deli in West Seattle a bag of chips and drinks and headed to what we call "our bench". It was so nice to have a quiet date and just be. After our dinner we went back to Husky Deli for ice cream and walked around The Junction then we headed back to Burien for a few beers at Elliott Bay Brewery.

Daily I am still amazed that this man wanted to marry me. I am beyond blessed.
