|My new wedding ring|
My plain wedding band was so tight, it was getting painful and I had an engagement ring I hadn't been able to wear for more than a decade. When two cuts were needed to get the wedding ring off, I realized it was time for something a little different. We decided to combine the two into one new ring. The two dark stones flanking my original diamond (tiny at the time as we were just starting out) are amethyst, which happen to be my favorite stone. They aren't as sparkly and I think they anchor and show off the diamonds. Symbols are important, and what better symbol than one of enduring love?
For me, it is also a symbol of enduring stash and a new status in my fiber hobby--Stashafaction. This newly coined word means stash satisfaction. That's when we pretty much have all the stash we will need for awhile. Oh, we may pick up some fiber here and there, but that's about it. We really don't need equipment or anything else. We are Stashafied.
