So today I turned a whopping 26 years old. It was awesome. Last year around my birthday, I was having a life crisis and trying to figure out "what to do with my life"... it wasn't fun. BUT, I figured it out (as I often do) and this year my life is kicking butt. Just figured I would do a quick birthday round up to cover all of the events that happened this week....
A HUGE box of books from Amazon came from my dad. Apparently he went a little wish list crazy. I recieved 101 One Yard Wonders (and I have already made a stuffed elephant out of it), Itty-Bitty Toys, The Yarn Girls Guide to Kid Knits, Sew U: The Home Stretch, and The Handmade Home. And, he informed me on my birthday that he also ordered some of the books that weren't out yet, so I will be getting gifts the next couple of months too! How exciting. All of these books are amazing and I can't wait to spend even more time with them. (Pictures of the elephant soon!)
My mom bought me a yarn meter, so I can easily measure my handspun (no more counting and math! whoo hoo!) and a sweater stone, both of which I see getting a lot of use. And my youngest brother bought me two sets of stitch markers from Etsy, one from WeeOnes and the other from Yarn Demon. Awesome.
My wonderful husband bought me the newest Jodi Picoult novel, which I can't wait to crack into... but not before I knit some more! :) He also brought me some flowers today, which was a welcome treat!
AND, as if that wasn't enough, a student in my knitting class brought me cupcakes today! How awesome. I love my life.
