    Keep love in your heart.
    A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.
    -Oscar Wilde

    Someone must really want his sweater . . . Gosh I'm one lucky gal! And, in a timely way, I have made quite a lot of progress on Salt Lake City. I'm winging my way up the color patterning on the yoke, and falling more and more in love. See the people holding hands? The Olympic flame? This is the center back. The rest is a series of snowflakes and mountains and fun geometric patterns. If only it wasn't 300+ stitches around . . . I guess that's why the flowers are here to encourage me!

    You are lucky to have converted your spouse to fiber supporting so early in your marriage! The sweater looks perfect for him from you.

    Flowers are a good idea. The sweater is beautiful! Cute mittens too.

    And THANK YOU for all the lovely cable sweaters you've been filling your Ravelry queue with! Mooning over them has been keeping me going at work.

    I've admired that whole series for so long, and I think I like Salt Lake City the best. But, 300 hundred stiches around....I don't know about that.

    Very nice! Did you add that couple holding hands or is it in the pattern? My guess is that it is in the pattern but you can tell your sweetie that it is the two of you :-)

    Wow, that sweater looks spectacular! Definitely worth the flowers. :)

    Let us know when you both would like to visit. We plan to be around all of April.
