Today is DBF and my's four year anniversary. It's hard to believe that it's been four years already now. Four years ago today, I was playing the Star Wars TCG at a game store, waiting until my friend Erica and I could go to a production of Robin Hood at the local arboretum. Erica called and said that she had to cancel because her mom had been in an accident in Georgetown and her mom had been trampled by a horse. I told her to get on over there to make sure her mom was OK, went back in to the card players and said that my evening plans had just been canceled.
That's when DBF spoke up and said, you know, I could always go with you. That was our first date. It was cheap, had funnel cake, and was a gorgeous evening. I think we hit it off pretty good right from the start and the rest is history :o)
So, tonight we're going to take a trip that he had won and go play in a poker tournament. It's someone else's money since he won the trip at the free poker league in town, so we're both really glad about that. It should be fun. As always, I will be taking knitting with me.
Speaking of (don't you love my topic change there...), I worked on a new pair of socks for my grandma.It's Knit Picks Dancing yarn. She picked it out from my stash. I'm already to the heel flap since she likes a shorter cuff on her socks. It's nice to be almost half way done with the first sock after just a couple of hours knitting. The Jaywalkers seemed to just take forever compared to this. Sometimes you just need some plain stockinette.
The other day, I had won a contest on the Virtual Vacation Swap group. I won four skeins of Blue Sky Alpaca Dyed Cotton in the Circus colorway and the pattern for the fitted tank. I'm working on it now, but I can just see this color clashing horribly with my hair. Worse case scenario, this will make a nice Christmas present for someone!
I better go get some work done since DBF and I will be leaving this afternoon for our trip. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
