Happy Anniversary

Today my husband and I celebrate our first wedding anniversary. You may ask why I am blogging and not doing exciting things, well the exciting things are to come on Tuesday when we fly to Berlin on our anniversary holiday so today we're relaxing.

Mr NorthernMonkey you are wonderful, your acceptance of the yarn is very much appreciated. Here's to many more happy anniversaries to come.

A quick knitting update, I finished my Germany socks in time for our trip to Berlin:

I cast on socks to knit whilst we're there if I get any time, admittedly I've already knit to the heel flap, Monkeys go fast!! The yarn is from Laughing Yaffle in the Hummingbird colourway, buy her yarn it's gorgeous.

I am packed for our trip, I only have handknit socks with me. I managed not to read any of that magazine so I will have it to read, that may be moved to hand luggage but not until we set off so I'm not tempted!! Also those two Yarn Harlot books were part of my anniversary present, it's our paper anniversary you know, I got two other books as well. I bought comics for my husband, he has his vice and I'd argue it takes up a lot more space and is less useful than yarn, comics don't keep you warm!!

So entry should have exciting tales of Berlin, I intend to go LYS hunting!


  1. Well done on getting the socks finished in time, they looks great (as does the one OTN)! Have a lovely holiday. :)

  2. Thank you! I can't believe how quickly the monkey socks are knitting up, I've already finished the leg, done the heel and decreased, just the foot to knit now!
