When I was courting my wife I tried really hard to be romantic. I once made her a European Survival Kit for a 3 week trip she was taking over the summer. It included things like a mix CD with a bunch of love songs, a journal she could use to write me about her travels, and a Johnny action figure complete with 6 interchangeable faces.
As many of you can relate, once you’re married and real life together begins, romance is a little harder to maintain. But this Valentines day I have to say I did a pretty good job.
Our local Chick-fil-a had couples night! There was a host waiting to seat us, the booths had black table cloths and candles, and there was an old lady playing cheesy love songs on a keyboard. It was great! We had so much fun and I must say, Chick-fil-a tastes better on a plate.
Afterward we went to the movies and saw The Vow. It’s a sappy chick flick but I still enjoyed it. While Lacie was at work I prepared our apartment with some rose petals, champagne, and battery operated candles (our building is old and real candles aren’t allowed). When we got home she was very impressed.
I can’t say I remember too many Valentines day’s but this one will probably be on our all time best list.

In anticipation of our upcoming Brioche Video Workshop we thought it’d be a good idea to highlight some of the best brioche books out there. Now not all of them focus solely on brioche knitting but they do have some great patterns in them we thought you should check out.
We recently announced the details for our Brioche Video Workshop which launches on Friday, February 24th!
To celebrate our sponsor Lion Brand has donated some yarn to giveaway as part of our sweepstakes!
That’s right! You and a friend can win a pass to the workshop and free yarn!
This Week’s Stitches
This cast on is great for ribbing and is incredibly stretchy!
The Seed Rib Stitch is A fairly simple way to add texture and interest to your projects.
The Chunky Cable Stitch is a magnified cable which would very effectively add some eye-catching drama to any garment or project.
This stitch is the perfect way to get a cable look without ever using a cable needle!
This pattern is perfect for blankets, pillows and shawls that include large pieces of fabric to show off this lovely stitch.
Well that’s all for this week.
See ya next week!
