(of the birthday goodies)
Daisies from my mom, cuz I love daisies. There are even seeds to plant more daisies. Thanks, Mom!
And what did I get myself? I finally caved and got a swift and ball winder! Here's Fred using them--he loves it too. It's the funnest new toy in the house! That's a backlog of Cascade 220 he's helping me wind up--smooth as silk and not nary a knot nor break. Can't say that for all yarns.
I also got some cash from Fred's mom & dad, and Emily did a tear-jerking post for me on her new blog! I'm so excited--now I can really keep up with her.
Another gift I gave myself was to go on a really painful hike with Fred (it's only 5 miles but lots of incline) and to knit a bit on a purely personal project. It felt good to just relax (especially after that hike) and do some fun knitting--I haven't had a day off in weeks & weeks! Here's a little snap of my Kureyon cardigan....
I'm done with the body and started a sleeve! It's just a figure-it-out-as-you-go thing. Ya know, for fun!
Go do some fun knitting yourself today!
Thanks for visiting...
