A Month of Birthdays

My birthday has come and gone along with my anniversary. It was marked by me getting up for work and then driving into Ottawa for dinner and a movie with DH. Not very exciting....yes I know. But it was one of those big fat ugly birthdays that a woman doesn't want to acknowledge and breaks out in hives at the mere mention of the number. I really just wanted to get the day over and done with, so I could go back to bed and pretend that the day never happened.

But what I can't play pretend about is a lack of a gift from DH. Yes you read that correctly, he didn't get me anything. I didn't even get a cake.

Fortunately, I covered him, once again. Last Saturday, while he and the kids were watching the Buskers Festival, I was at Knit-Knackers buying something for myself.

Eleven 100g skeins of Louet Gems Merino light worsted weight in cherry red for a price that I could not pass up. I did get the DPNs sets that were the original reason I went to the store. So the yarn was just a bonus. Happy Birthday to me!!!

Actually, if truth be told I also went there to give Emily (the nice gal who works there) her gift. It's her birthday today. She is a wonderful person despite the fact she knits socks on DPNs that look like broom handles.

Look carefully, it's my first happy clappy. What a fun scarf to knit and unravel, so much so I think that I've almost changed my mind about scarf knitting. It's made with Lullaby by Berroco that I got from my stash. Yah gotta like that.

Until next time
Yours in Yarn,
The Fibreholic

Well, that's the way it is with Husbands, sometimes they're just dense. Daughter and I just got back from a 10 day vacation to find that mine hadn't done ANYTHING. No shopping, no cleaning, no laundry, nothing. And he wonders why I'm not in a good mood. Dense I tell you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I am happy to see you did well for yourself. That wool is awesome. Do you have special plans for it? The scarf you made is neat almost like a shawl.
Have a good weekend.

Many Happy Returns! At least by choosing your own pressie you've got something you know you'll love! And lovely work on the clappy, gorgeous colours.

Oh, happy belated! Men do stink, sometimes, don't they? Would it really kill them to get a cake? Oh well - I'm glad you got yourself something nice, at least!
