First of all, I have to say thank you to everybody for the super birthday wishes! I got so many. I needed them, too. Thank you all!! I had a pretty good day. The house was clean (for a while), we won't talk about the kids. (Two of them had little meltdowns. Kids!) One relative (I won't say who) missed my birthday. So, the birthday wishes from everyone here, made me feel so much better! Thank you, thank you, thank you all!!!! I got gifts, and my MIL made me a cake! Time to brag a little. I got an mp3 player -- Knitcasts, here I come! I got the Shark steam cleaner. Whoo Hoo. (I told you I have an inner Monk) My friend, Carrie gave me a Yarn Harlot book. I've been wanting to read it, too. It's so funny. Then, I got yarn $$. $$, with the strict orders for it to be just for me, from one relative, then $$ from Cindy (cps) with orders for it to be just for yarn for myself! LOL. Guess I'd better pick which sweater I want to knit. Since I actually have some money to spend on me. That doesn't happen much around here!
Ok, so. Last night I went over to Cindy's, for a sock lesson. I brought the little baby hat that I'm knitting for the Dutchican Three. I should probably stop referring to Kristi's little boys as that, but it's so cute! We got all the yarn and needles, and everything out, and the other girls showed up. We talked (and my fingers went round n round on the tiny hat). We had a great time, but no knitting lesson. :( One of the other women there, has been wanting a knitting lesson from me for forever. Next time, everyone has to bring needles, and yarn!! LOL
Well, here's a picture of the two pair of little socks that are done. The middle picture has a quarter (US twenty-five cents). See how tiny they are. They stretch to about as big as the little blue socks, though. I didn't follow the directions, as usual. When will I learn? I did a little afterthought heel, instead of the short row heel. It's cute, but not so stretchy. Next time I'll listen to you, Boogie, I promise! So, I have two pair of baby socks, and Cindy gave me a beautiful hand knit baby blanket to send, and a pair of little blue mittens. I'm also knitting a little hat. I'll probably post this over at the warm those triplets up site, too.
The weekend (without kids since they are in Ohio with their Granny) is calling. Gotta go! I just have to say thanks again to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. You seriously don't know how much that meant to me. Hope everybody has a great, knit-filled weekend!!
