I am finally married!
I took a knitting class about 14 years ago and started a sweater. My then fiance said when I finished it, we could get married. Well, it languished in storage and then got attacked by mice...

So, I took up knitting again about 4 months ago and this is my first sweater I have ever FO. I made him Yarn Forward's Bomber Jacket for his birthday (it was supposed to be done in a solid color - but I thought that was boring). I gave it to him for his birthday last week and I told him we could now get married.

We've actually been married now for about 12 and a half years. BTW, his other requirement to marry me was that we do a polka together (that one I did manage to complete in a timely fashion).

Now he needs to put on his beautiful new sweater and
the two of you need to polka together.

He'd probably tell me I'd have to knit a wedding dress prior to renewing the vows...
