No, not this one. Or even this one.
Definitely not this one! The one that goes with these.
My gold-leafed Pier One beauties, bought one and two at a time until I had service for twelve. Where did I find it? At the bottom of this box, when I was repacking the contents into smaller boxes.
I was a busy, busy girl on Saturday. The kitchen is nearly packed up.
Same bookcase, bottom half.
Still not done, but getting close. And plenty of knitting during the day.
2.25 repeats of the pattern when I drafted this post. I’m down to 144 stitches per round [from 168], and it’s approaching 4” long. Bliss.
A happy sixth anniversary [yesterday] to Firstborn and 1BDH. A happy eighth anniversary [tomorrow] to Secondborn and 2BDH. [A swift kick in the pants to Middlest’s soon-to-be-ex and his bimba.]

Her certificate was signed by the Prophet, and somebody I don’t know, and our dear stake president, and our good friend Brother V. I was home with a tummy full of ice cream bar by 8:13.
- Four years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!
