Happy Birthday to me!


Yes, 33 years ago today, I was born! We've mostly done all of our celebrating here around the house - because of Mickael's work schedule we had birthday cake earlier in the week. I understand I narrowly missed out on having a Superman cake - I got a cake with two yellow duckies on it instead. Strangely enough the ducks have disappeared and they didn't end up in my bathtub! You've already seen the wool combs Mickael got for me, but above you can see what Caleb got for me - sheep! The big sheep's name is Mary and the baby is Yarn (Yarn was named by Caleb). In a duck related incident, Caleb declared that since there was a mommy sheep and a baby sheep, he would take the baby sheep - since he's the baby and all. I've got to remember to always ask for something Caleb doesn't want for himself if I plan to keep any part of my birthday!

In knitting news, as you can see I've made it past the heel flap and the heel turn on my Sockapaloooza sock and I'm ready to start the gusset. I decided since these were such Springy socks that I would make the cuffs shorter than I usually do for colder weather socks. I'm loving how this sock is looking and I hope my sock pal likes them!

I've also joined a new knitalong, but its not a knitalong. Make sense? Its a sew along for knitters! Its Sew? I knit. I found it too late to get in on the beginning - they've already made a skirt - but I got in for the next project: a bag! If you're interested in signing up, details are in the sidebar of the knit/sewalong -link above (I'll stick a button in my sidebar soon) Signups close tomorrow and sewing begins April 1, but you have until April 30 to get your bag done. Aurora is going to do it also, and it would be fun to "know" some more people in it too!

Finally, in my uncaffeinated blog wanderings (in other words, I was clicking on stuff and have no idea how I got there) I stumbled across the cutest little bunny pattern at Wee Wonderfuls. This is such a bunny time of year (unless you live in Australia and then I guess its kind of a pumpkin kind of year) and I think this is the sweetest little bunny! I will probably be making one of these for my Sister In Law's Sister's Baby (I've got to come up with a better way to refer to that kid!) who is due this summer. Then my warped little brain thought, "hey, I could make a cute Wee Bunny, OR I could make Deranged Bunny, Psychopath Bunny, or even Pirate Bunny!" Its all in how you make the face and accessorize the bunny. Go make a bunny!

Happy Birthday Melanie! It seems as though everyone is sewing and making beautiful quilts it's really making me think I should buy a sewing machine and learn how to sew myself.

I'm glad to see that Caleb is a genius. There's nothing like giving a gift and getting to keep part of it for yourself. I must also say that I get why he named it Yarn. Post Office is another story...

Super Happy Birthday!
