I mentioned in an earlier post the boys took me out for an early birthday dinner which was wonderful. I have to say thank you to everyone and their kindness and generosity they've shown me with well wishes and gifts or PM on ravelry. I feel like I'm just receiving so much good with or without it being due to my birthday.
Evidence #1: Andi sent me this pattern I have been coveting! Overwhelmingly generous! I am hoping not to wait too long to cast this on. I have this yarn I got from Saco River Dyehouse that I got from reading about their kickstarter fund from Knitting in Beantown. A soft looking grey for a uniform cardigan. I think it'll be perfect! fingers crossed!
Evidence #2: I won some yarn from Two Cables n' a Frapp! How lucky am I?
Evidence #3: While I was in Petaluma I tried to visit a yarn store that always seems to be closed when I was passing through. Well guess what? They just started being open on Mondays! Happy Birthday to me! So I treated myself to some yarn (Madelinetosh is apparently a problem for me, a good problem, but a problem nonetheless). I also got myself some US1 karbonz dpns. I really like these. My bamboo ones are too long and the karbonz have a surprising amount of give to them when knitting. yay! Oh I also got this nifty project bag. Can't have enough project bags. Petaluma is known for it's free range chickens and organic eggs, hence the rooster.
