Happy Birthday

to meeeeeeeeeeeee, happy birthday to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, happy birthday to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee---eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, happy birthday to me!
In case you haven't guessed, it was my birthday yesterday! I have lots of goodies (and, I understand, some more on the way!) but I'm afraid there are no pictures at the moment. I'm back at work so am never at home in daylight on weekdays now. The light inside is so orange everything came out looking weird. Anyway, my vast haul included piles of CHOCOLATE, piles of YARN, a subscription to Simply Knitting (thank you Sooty!), a new suitcase, a sheep (not real, I hasten to add), more crafty stuff (cards, stitch markers) and a book!

I am also pleased to report that I've survived the first 24 hours of being 26 and actually it seems to be pretty much the same as being 25... And there I was thinking I'd be able to knit faster as I got older!

On the subject of knitting, no photos of this either I'm afraid, but PVP is finished! I found the ribbon (where I'd put it, in the same bag as the knitting!) and attached it to the front and it looks FAB. The silly baby jumper just needs its sleeves sewing on, then it'll be done too. I'm afraid that I have already started something new, and cast on one of the scarf patterns from Scarf Style. But this is using stash yarn - impressive or what?!

Thank you to the people who left Happy Birthday messages! :-) I will try and post some pics at the weekend!

Yay for starting new projects, don't you just love it or is it just me who can't wait to finish one thing and start the next? Impatient? Moi??

Happy (belated) Birthday! Sounds like you had a good haul. And what a clever cat Sooty must be, to get you that subscription.

Steph said...

Belated Happy Birthday wishes! Sounds like you had some fab pressies. :-)

Amelia said...

And a very belated happy birthday to you!! Sorry I missed the day, work's been mad and time flies by. Trust me, all the birthdays that start with a 2 are just fine. The ones that start with a 3 are a little harder to handle and the husband swears that the ones starting with a 4 are just not worth thinking about ;) A. x
