I was going to post a video of the Little River Band's version of this song... but I really only know the very first title line. I managed to listen to the first verse and realized... this is not the song I want to celebrate my happy day. If like me, you've never really listened to the lyrics - check them out HERE. Isn't it funny how you sing a song, or part of song, for most of your life only to discover the song is about something totally unexpected. With the wonders of the internet, I find this happens more often than I would have thought.
But it is our anniversary. We technically have two anniversaries. We had a civil ceremony on the 20th and a religious ceremony on the 23rd. We always have a good laugh about not knowing which day is our anniversary. It's not that we can't remember or don't care - it's that we have two. Our love is so good - we celebrate twice.
So in honor of the first of our two anniversaries - I knit BF a pair of cashmere anniversary socks.
I started by going into my stash of worsted weight Lobster Pot cashmere yarn. The red and black were a bit too bold for my taste for combining with the green, purple and tan. I thought I might just have enough of the tan, green and purple for a full pair of socks.
I did a random striping pattern with the green being the predominant color.
I was quite pleased with the way they turned out.
So there you have it - a pair of anniversary socks for the love of my life. Our love is so good - we celebrate twice. Perhaps I should have given one sock to BF on the 20th and the other on the 23rd. Maybe I'll remember that next year.
Happy Anniversary Baby - I'm so glad that you're mine!
