No Surprises
Created By: Virginia Sears

As a young newlywed, I decided to knit a sweater for my husband. Never mind the fact that he was in the military - and we were living in Roswell, NM at the time - where the temp. often reached 114 degrees. Anyhow, I wrote a check for the yarn - we were on a very limited budget. I didn't write the payee in the check book since that would ruin the surprise, only the amount of the check. I had stashed the yarn at my job, and was knitting on breaks and lunch hours - even taught a couple of co-workers how to knit.

We had one of the biggest fights of our young marriage over that check. My now ex-husband hounded me about the check until I finally admitted where I had written the check - and of course the surprise was ruined! I did finish the sweater - and he had ample opportunities to wear it as his next assignment was in Goose Bay Labrador. The sweater lasted longer than the marriage did!
