This is just a tribute

I want to say happy birthday to the greatest boyfriend in the whole world.

You listened to my constant waffling over whether I should do this hat in allover cables or mostly stockinette.



You comforted me as I panicked and despaired over the total bitch that is the edging for my shawl, which tried to detach itself last night. I am sorry if I scared you while I was hyperventilating.

(knitters--it turns out I am attaching it backwards, and there's a visible seam. I am tempted to like it, but I kinda can't decide. Any thoughts?)



You cheered me on as I blocked "that brown thing," and then you learned the difference between "feral"



...and "fair isle."

Ooh, I like the cables on the hat! And I think the shawl/edge attachment looks just fine from here.

He IS the greatest boyfriend in the world and we wish him a very happy birthday, too. He's also about the most patient person I've ever met to support you like he has in your knitting "journey." ....and as you stand around talking to him and knitting at the same time....
Nice feral photo - it cracked me up!

Happy Birthday Liz's Boyfriend. Thanks for being patient because, as another knitter, we sure can talk about it incessantly. :)

He's a keeper. :) Happy Birthday to him! Love the hat, the shawl looks great from what I can see... and I can't wait to see Venezia! I told someone in Finland about it and she visited, was a bit discouraged about your pile of ends though. :)

Wow that's looking like a beautiful Venezia in that last picture. I can't wait to see the final result.

The shawl is gorgeous!

Many a frustrated knitter have had problems with the feral-fairisle distinction, I'm sure. Happy birthday to your boyfriend!
