:balloons: Happy Birthday!!! :balloons:

For me it's already half the fun just looking around, knowing I could pick each and every one of those lovely things and then finally deciding on my absolute most favorite to take home :)

So, have loads of fun looking at all the wonderful things you could get for yourself :present:

HAH--thanks ya'll !! I used my mom's middle name as a screen name--my DH didn't want me to use my real name online--so I used Ellen....hey, anyway--wouldn't ANYONE rather be named Ellen than TRUDY!!?? But the longer I was here and getting to know youall, I didn't want to be called by someone elses' name among my friends at KH!!!! ;)

Thank you all for the birthday wishs--it's been a really good one, and I am excited about looking over the KnitPicks site --- it'll take me forever to decide, I know. That's half the fun--the "search"!!

But, if you notice, my sig now says "My name should be RIBBIT (cause I have to rip out SO MUCH!!), but it's Trudy!" So, I've been "outting myself" for awhile now!! :blush: My NAME--not my sex pref. :shock: !! (I've been married for 40 years next June! :inlove: )[

Below is how I looked in the late 70's...

Thanks SO SO much to all of you for my birthday wishes (and compliments--Foldedbird! AND tips on HOW to spend my gift certificate--yes, 'becca, that's you!) --you are so very sweet and kind. If one is known by the company one keeps, I shall be known as a very kind human being!! That's a good start, huh?

I don't think I'll ever be a great (or HOT!) knitter--but if I can ever get to the point where I CHECK every few rows to make sure I haven't dropped stitches,split the yarn, etc., I'll think I'm making progress. Sometimes I get in such a hurry to get through a project, I'll make mistakes that I don't have any business making. So I hope my "advanced age" will help me start to be more mindful of my knitting! :rollseyes:

Hmmmm...my first book: "THE MINDFUL KNITTER"!!
I like the sound of that! :D :rofling:

Trudy, we've *all* been there! I was saying that about 11 1/2 months ago, but then I found this forum. Now look at me. I only drop stitches every 20 or so rows! :roflhard:
