My Husband, The Enabler

That's him there, the handsome man in the purple shirt and white hat at the helm. My husband, the enabler.

What I Love About Love, Part I: You make each other better people. You encourage each other to chase after the things that make you happy.

Oren has always wanted to learn how to sail, so earlier this month, he went out for sailing camp at the Washington Sailing Marina. After sinking the boat on the first day (no, really), he managed to stay on top of the water and pass the exam. He will be referred to as "Cap'n" from now on.

Cap'n has been incredibly supportive of my knitting habit and showed his love for me this month when we went down to Duck, N.C., for a wedding. (I didn't know it at the time, but a fellow blogger was the mother of the bride! Hi, Liza!)

As predicted, I used my Stashalong Free Day for Souvenir S-E-X at Knitting Addiction. It was AWESOME! Jeanne and Brittany have an amazing selection of yarn, including several that I had read about but never seen, including recycled sari silk, 1824 wool from Mission Falls, and Cherry Tree Hill's sock yarn.

Oren walked around the shop with me checking out the yarns, and he's the one who found a swatch of the Plymouth Royal Bamboo knitted up and washed. I had no idea what it was at first, but quickly fell in love. So did he. So much so, that he helped me find a pattern to use it for (Gina Wilde's Picot Camisole from Interweave Knits Spring 2006) and pushed me to buy it.

Here is the progress so far:

Thanks, Cap'n. I love you, too.
