My husband bought me yarn in Athens, Greece (pictures on page 2)
Oh yeah - that's the souvenier that I want!

He left on Monday and will be flying back late Sunday night. I've been home alone with our toddler who's had the stomach flu - it wasn't pretty. He's finally back in daycare and I'm trying to get caught up with work when my husband calls me, from a yarn shop.

"Honey, I found some wool and cashmere mix. It's really soft and I think it's about $4 US a hank for over 300 yards. What color would you like and how many should I get?"

I think my heart just stopped. He's been in meetings all day, every day and on his one afternoon off he and a co-worker went yarn shopping for me! Is it possible to fall in love again with the same man that I've been married to for 7 years now?

He picked up 3 hanks in royal blue and said it was lace weight. I can't wait to see him on Sunday - the yarn too!

What a sweet and thoughtful hubby. Doesn't it just blow you away when they do something so unexpected like that.

That's so sweet and thoughtful! You're so blessed with such a caring husband, and he's obviously so blessed with an appreciative and loving wife.

That's a whole lot of love... and when you add the yarn, I don't think it could get any better than that

I'm sorry what did you say???

Everything got kind of fuzzy for a moment after I read "My husband bought me yarn . . ."

I'm excited for him to come home but now I can't wait to see what he picked out.

Whenever we visit a new city we normally track down at least one LYS in the area. I don't normally buy at every store but he must be so used to it by now.

My mind is just racing trying to figure out what to make. He didn't say the brand or % for the fiber mix. It's just under 1,000 yards of lace weight in royal blue. Any suggestions as to what I could make that would work with some kind of mixture of wool and cashmere?

[I've never knit with cashmere before!]

Excuse me while I get lost in Ravelry searching for the perfect pattern . . .
