he's home. (!!!! sflasklfjaslkf!!!!)
when i started this blog, we were dating. we lived across town from one another, just a short bike ride away. we married in college & lived in a tiny attic apartment. we held hands while bicycling to our classes. we moved a couple of years later to begin our careers & stretch ourselves much more than we ever thought we could. he drove 45 minutes to work & i hated most every day of my job. we grew tired of the difficulty & lack of community so we moved upstate. he stayed on the farm during the week & i found my dream job. he drove two hours home on the weekends, listening to podcasts & npr. we had community, but we didn't share a home.
he's finally home & i cannot tell you how good it all feels. this morning he opened up the garage, dusted off his bicycle & rode to work. with his helmet on.
before he left, i asked if he would pose in his new knitted hat i made him for valentine's day & he agreed. that's what us blogging wives do, right? then he quickly put on his helmet & left just in time for his first day.
here's a bit about the hat. the purl bee is such a dream & i found the pattern here. i was looking for a fairly simple hat with detail. i used one wooly blend skein of lamb's pride yarn in the most beautiful yellowish green. i plan to cast on one for myself in a robin's egg blue color. the hat knitting obsession continues.
wishing you a wonderful week of knitting, bicycles & love
