Birthday Booty

May 22, 2007 at 8:05 pm | Posted in knitting | 8 Comments

This year when my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday, all I really asked for was a nice dinner out. Well Chris went above and beyond. For dinner we ate at a local fancy shmancy restaurant, Bistro Aix. Then, sweet man that he is, he presented me with this:

He, who doesn’t really understand this whole knitting obsession thing, researched interchangable needles all by himself and found that these came highly recommended. He even sprung for the companion set of extra cords and ends. And picked pink!

The next day we ate dinner with my family, and my nephew and I had our annual joint birthday shindig. My mom really surprise me and gave me this:

It’s so pretty! It’s made by Lantern Moon and is the perfect size for my needles and accessories. My sister made me another 15 stitch markers and now I feel like a seasoned knitter with all of my new knittery stuff.

I’m a lucky girl.

Thanks to all of the people who left comments on my last post. I do feel better knowing it’s not just me who jumps from project to project. I definitely have my knitting moods. Sometimes I want something I don’t have to pay attention to, sometimes I enjoy a challenge. So, in keeping with my current pace of one new WIP per week, last night I started making this (Thanks Vic!):
