Wedding Anniversay

Today is our 12th Wedding Anniversary and the present for the 12th is silk or linen.

I don't know how or who came up with the wedding anniversary gift theme but I am sure they were designed to be given to wives only because it is soooo hard to find a present in the themes suggested for a male. That's my opinion anyway. This is what I bought him and I am happy to say that he likes them. Silk jocks.....why....because I couldn't think of anything else and he doesn't wear ties anymore and he has plenty of silk ties from when he did wear them and he doesn't wear PJ's or dressing gowns.
My wonderful husband got me these beauties. Not just 2, 4 or 6 skeins no sireeee he bought me 8 wonderful skeins of Regal Silk hand painted by Artyarns! the photo doesn't do any justice to the colours they are a gorgeous green with bronze, he knows that my favourite colour is green. And he also got me these lovely Lantern Moon Sox Stix because they are in silk bags. I have been admiring these for ages but never got around to buying them.
I ask you ......"Does he know me well or what?!".....
This morning my son pulled out the names for my blog competition from the hat he made in Art at school.

And the winners are Hissyknit from the US and as per my usual for International Pals I have put together a couple of Aussie items.
And the second winner is Christine. And below are non Aussie prizes for you Christine. How's your Autumn Rose coming along? Mine is a bit slow plus I stuffed up so need to frog back 2 rows!!! Would you please email me helenwataanetdotcomdotau with your address so that I can send you your prizes.

A big thank you to all who entered my competition.

It has taken me ages to blog again, Kim says he now knows why I don't have time for knitting!

I also need to go and pack but still have no house to move to and it's stressing me out so much. I hope we find something somewhere soon because we only have about 5 weeks left before we have to move out.

That's it from me for now, hope you are all having a great weekend.

Happy anniversary Helen! Looks like you got some wonderful gifts!

It really is a small world. Hissyknits was my (fantastic) upstream pal for SP11! I have been so lucky to have the two of you as my pals. :-)
