How lucky am I?

I think I am just about the luckiest person in the world, and I have to tell you why…

Today is my wedding anniversary (at least it will be for the next five minutes), and this is what my husband gave me:

The scarf that M made for me

He made me a jumper for our first anniversary, but hasn’t done any knitting in almost 16 years. This year, because Meg was knitting and we were both helping her out, he decided to have make me a scarf. He spent hours on it, and it is absolutely beautiful.
The pattern came from here, and he searched Youtube for tutorials on how to work the lace.
In the words of Meg – the sage 14 year old – “Knitting [Mum] that scarf is pretty sexy, Dad”. Oh yeah.

A friend of Meg’s had a birthday recently, and a party was held last night.

This is the card Meg made to accompany the present. It came complete with decorated envelope and had a pop-up girl who appeared to jump when the card was opened.
