Best birthday present EVER!
Yesterday was the big day, and my parents surprised me with my first-ever set of interchangeable needles! I had been eyeing KnitPicks Options for a while now, and I was so excited.

And from my sister, I received a cute lambie mug and ball of yarn earrings, both from KnitPicks!

I think I'll go drink a nice warm mug of hot chocolate in my fancy new mug.

Those are wonderful gifts!! You'll love those needles! Hint- to make sure they are tightened enough to not come unscrewed use the locking pin AND a piece of grippy shelf liner. I've had the needles for a few years now and haven't had one come unscrewed.

Happy birthday!

Even later birthday wishes from me!!

Fantastic presents! Love the mug, I think I need one of those! I have the Knitpicks Sunstruck interchangeable set, the light wood ones. I'm still learning the best way to hold them etc, but I just knitted a cowl with them in a few hours over a couple of evenings.
