Seven Year Pouch

This past month, H and I celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary!

We always use the chalice we used in our wedding ceremony, a Japanese tablecloth from my grandfather, and a couple of brass candlesticks from my sister that go very well with our chalice. We always give each other "traditional" gifts - this year it was wool. H decided to form an association called PAW (people against wool). He has had one too many scratchy sweaters in his life, and generally despises winter. I'm slowly introducing him to this luscious blend of cashmere, silk and merino wool however...

Pattern: Soft Drawstring Pouch from Last Minute Knitted Gifts (smallest of the three sizes)

Yarn: Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK, leftover from these baby booties (I used every last inch of the leftover yarn!)

Needles: US 1 double pointed

He was terrified that his present was a pair of socks. Ha! This pouch was perfect - he doesn't have to wear it, and it will be useful for lots of things. In particular, as a travel pouch for his rolled up ties.

H gave me a beautiful creme wool beret which came in the mail a day or two after our celebration. In the meantime, he gave me the card you see in the second picture - incredibly sweet and meaningful to us. Soon I'll post pictures of my latest knitting project. Stay tuned...
