Presents for me!
Starting with a ball of Debbie Bliss cotton angora (very nice yarn) in Navy and what I am assuming is some of the same in white along with a very pale pink Fortissima Cotton sock yarn. The label had the German 1 paar socken on it. I think that means I should get one pair of ladies socks from it although once I get going on socks, I think that they will turn into some knee socks for Girly.
A beautiful DPN case and some Crystal Palace DPN's. I immediately dug my poor, loose, rolling around DPN's out of the plastic bin they were in and put them in. There is even plenty of room for my crochet hooks. The Crystal Palace bamboos are gorgeous! So smooth. Love them.
The backside of my new DPN Holder. So cute.
The Eyre Affair. I've skimmed it a little and it looks like an enjoyable read and as soon as I manage to finish "The Secret Life of Bees" I will dive right in. So sad, I used to read a book a day (mostly fiction) and now I'm lucky if I get a chapter a week before falling asleep. Makes for a very different feel to a book. My pal also made me some cute Knitting Swap Partner Labels and sent me the pattern for Fetching. Very handy and pretty. The Debbie Bliss should be perfect for it. The pattern says it uses an entire ball with maybe a yard left over so I may use the white for striping or a detail at the beginning and end. I like a long glove/mitt so I'll probably add some length in which case, the white will come in very handy.
Chocolate, so good. I've already gotten at the Hershey's Cacao Reserve Squares. Very nice. If you are wondering how to eat chocolate this dark, try it with a sweet hot tea, flavoured coffees, or a nice dessert wine. You would take a little bite right after you take a sip of your drink of choice. I like it in little bites as is and it isn't sweet so I can have quite a bit without worrying about insulin shakes an hour later.
All right on time for my Birthday today! Happy Birthday to me!
Thank you very much for the hilarious Birthday Card, Nicole so funny!
