Guess how much I love him

A play on words from my favourite book.

I'll explain in pics......

It's our anniversary today and instead of the roses he usually sends (which I adore), today Jomps went on a hunt for a knitting book for me! You have to understand just how alien this behaviour is. When I visit my LYS, he waits outside with the pretence of looking after the buggy. When soft, squidgy parcels arrive, he looks the other way.

So, for Jomps to venture into the knitting aisle of the bookstore, and even into a yarn store(!), he must really really really love me! And even better, he picked a fantastic book. He said that all the books looked like they were aimed at 'knitting beginners' so that implies that he thinks I'm pretty good at this knitting lark!!

Did I tell you how much I love my lovely husband?!

Must dash now...have a date with a large box of Thorntons! Oh...and my husband of course!!!

Well done you on bagging yourself a very thoughtful husband. Pleased to report my fiance is likewise and once went through my dollshouse to see what tiny items I was missing to get for my Xmas!!
Aren't we lucky? and aren't they for having us lovelies to spoil!!

What a lovely thoughtful husband you have.
That book is brilliant. It was one of the first knitting books I owned and I've used it lots. Excellent choice.

Well done, on finding one of the 'good ones'. I too have a really wonderful DH, and oh btw, we just celebrated our Anniversary on the 1st. While he did not give me 'wool' (the gift for the 7th anniversary), he did spoil me rotten. I on the other hand casted on his requested Icelandic Wool Cardigan. (We won't go into the fact that it was frogged and CO a couple of times) :)

Have a Lovely Day
Your SP
