Twelve years ago today, a star was born! Yep, my eldest son’s bday is today. Can ya’ll just imagine how he’s gonna work that to his advantage in the very near future with all the lovely ladies? We did a little tiny party for him on Saturday because he hadn’t had one in forever – he was happy. I’m proud of my son, love him to pieces. He brought me his report card on Monday and brought his GPA UP BY THREE POINTS!! WOO HOO! Go Alex! I love you son, even if you DO lose hats every week!
And YESSSS I got My Precious!! Meet her. Here she sits on top of her sister Chloe. Isn’t she a beauty? Apparently, none of these bags are the same. They all look different – different shades of brown leather. I ended up getting the SAME EXACT ONE that I fell in love with in the store window. I am BEYOND happy. Thanks to all of you for helping to convince me to get her. She’s lovely.
What’s inside, you ask? Why, it’s two new books hot off the presses! Interweave’s Lace Style and Favorite Socks. Knit Picks has them both in stock already! YAAAY for Knit Picks! Both are BEAUTIFUL books with great patterns. I really like the Lace Style because it doesn’t only have shawls – it has sweaters, socks, and even a bracelet! I also got one of EZ’s DVDs – A Knitting Glossary – which has been on my wishlist. Also, Astrid had a great sale on Profi needles – free priority shipping when you bought two. These needles are really good. I like them a lot.
A few weeks ago I finished the Storm Water Scarf for a very good friend of mine, Laurie. She received it and says she loves it. I’m sure she does. She truly is someone that appreciates a good hand knit item made with love. I don’t mind knitting for her AT ALL!

Here’s a link worth bookmarking. gethuman 500 database It’s a database that tells you how to get an ACTUAL HUMAN BEING on the phone instead of those automated voices! UGH! Hate those!
