Knitted Engagement Ring

Whew! Since the last post, we have moved, unpacked the new place, had my 30th birthday party, recovered from said party, drove to Sudbury for Christmas and back again..... and somewhere in there we found time to get engaged. And get this- he knitted me my engagement ring. I do wear it all the time. I'm wearing it right now, in fact. We knew that things were going this way (meaning, towards the alter), and we were thinking of designing our own engagement ring (I really like art deco style rings)and having it made. That is still the plan, but G didn't want to wait. I love that about him. I hope everyone had wonderful holidays!! I promise to blog more regularly from here on in. Knitting content coming soon!!
