Week Two: Token

The day I got married, I was panicked I'd lose my engagement ring. I know some people nowadays just have one ring, or have both rings soldered together, but I went old-school and took off my diamond to make way for my wedding ring.

So, the day I got married, I knit one of these. And I wore it to my wedding. It worked perfectly.
