Anniversary Traditions

Our anniversary is Mid-October and for the first one last year we headed to the mountains in NC and picked apples.  Just so happened I had made some Bella mittens and wanted to show them off (with an apple - just like the pattern picture).  We had great pictures of my new mittens and matching hat...

Interestingly enough this year we headed back to the same NC moutains for more apples and another anniversary celebration.  I also just so happened to have some new mittens and a hat to show off! 

First, my hat - Foliage in Malabrigo Chunky - Sauterne colorway (BRIGHT yellow)

 Next, my FAVORITE!  My pecovegetarian mittens also in Malabrigo Chunky....LOVE these!  They are a great purple colorway - Cuarzo.  I felt so clever making them b/c the pattern is so cool (but easy!) and they knit up REALLY quickly!

 So ... I'm thinking besides an anniversary and a trip to the mountains, maybe I have a new hat and mittens each year to mark the occasion.  I'm envisioning a laundry line strung around my craft room with a pair of mittens from each anniversary we spend together.  A big long string FULL of mittens...yeah.. :)

Mostly - b/c I really love this man, and the fact that he takes special pictures of my knit items to show off here (b/c he loves me too!) 
happy, happy, happy :)
