knitSB and knittingbrow: abridged

I've not told you, but I've got my "something better."

We met last year and spent a lot of time together. I taught him to knit. He continues to knit and is good. He's just learning to knit a sleeve on double points. He's using the EPS.

Ever know when it is just better than you ever expected? I do. And when that happens, I like to make a commitment. And I like to exchange jewelry. See?

We had them specially made.

They say "my something better"

knitSB's has my handwriting on it.

Mine has his handwriting on it. And the wonderful thing is that the writing is cast into the ring, not just etched in. So it is not going anywhere.

The place that made the rings was thrilled to have such a unique request. They were wonderful to work with in the creation. We're thrilled.

We've done something private but are considering a ceremony sometime in the fall. And probably a party. I mean, we all need a great reason to celebrate, right?
