PAPER . . . CHINA . . . YARN

At the board meeting last week for the Seattle Knitters Guild, I had to express my regrets that I wouldn't be able to make it to the Guild's holiday party, being held tonight. I explained that it's Scott's and my wedding anniversary, and we'd be going out to dinner.

"What year?" asked one of my fellow board members.

"The twenty-second."

"Oh, honey, that's the yarn anniversary! You just get your husband and you bring him along to the party."

This woman who's so quick with the comebacks is new to the board, and I think I'm really going to like working with her this coming year.

I don't know whether there will be any yarn involved in this anniversary celebration tonight, or not. But if you want to see what year anniversary it is for Scott, click here. (Really, he asked for it.)

What is that, a toaster? Pretty impressive, I'll say!

I got to miss the party too, only for something much less enjoyable (like work) i hope that you two had a great evening.

I was unaware of the toaster anniversary! Thanks for pointing that out! :) Happy anniversary! I hope you enjoy as many more years with the person you love.

Anne: Yes, a TOASTER! LOL

Marti: It was a lovely evening, thanks. Hope everything at work went smoothly for you. I also missed the Lacy Knitters Guild Christmas party last Sunday . . . have gone to that faithfully the last two years. Did you get to that party?

Kendall: How nice to see you popping up in the comments here! Thanks for the best wishes.

Happy Anniversary!
What a merry kitchen to always have a smile, even on the toaster.
Yarn really should be an alternate every year.

Someone really needs to change that list...can't one year be the ipod year?
