New Stuff!

I had a very knitty birthday this year. From my sister, I got a Yarn Harlot book and a pattern book.

From Eric and Kim:

From myself:

Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in "Spring Frost". Love CTH!!! Very sproingy.

Purchased with a gift certificate from David and Cheryl:


From myself:

Brooklyn Handspun in "Java". This will be my first BH experience. I'm excited!

From my husband:

Regia bamboo and Regia cotton colors.

Also, I finished Odessa (did ya'll even know I was working on Odessa?). I love this pattern. The beads look like little dewdrops. I think I will knit with beads all the time now.

Ok, so I had it with me at work. But I wasn't working on it at work. Unlike some people.
Close-up look at beads:

Great birthday! Oh, and my parents got me a generous gift certificate to Lands End, which is not knitty, but very much appreciated nonetheless!

I'll knit at work all I want, thank you!

You really did have a knitty birthday. In fact, it looks like a birthday full of sock yarn. You could even say that your birthday SOCKED!

All right, that was lame! Whoops! What I meant to say was:

Happy Birthday!
