happy birthday to me!!!!
I have the best husband in the world!!!

For my birthday he went to our LYS and bought me some skeins of beautiful wool "Manos del Uraguay", some new pattern books and 6 sets of addi Turbo needles!!!

He's so supportive of my learning to knit--I made him a wool scarf a while back and he wears it all the time. Now if I can just raise my level of skills so I can make all the beautiful things I see in my new books!!!



back to work!
thanks for letting me share!
