hooray for birthdays (and granddads)!
Although i havn't recieved them yet (still in the mail) i have been told that my granddad has bought me a set of knitpicks options interchangeable needles!! yippee

I don't think i got anything else knitting related, when my dad asked me what i would like he liked that the list was split between knitting supplies and armour and weapons (i do LARP). what more could a 23yr old want than a double headed battle axe and some bamboo yarn?

nice relatives
You are so lucky to have such nice granddad. Cherish him and share with him and your grandmother while you can because life is so precious and sometimes not long enough.
What is LARP?

yes Live Action Role Play ... i have created a new character for a big event at the end of the month ... having an axe is part of the cultural breif!

Sadly my grandmother passed away several years ago, she is still missed, but was (And still is in a way) very much loved, as is the granddad. Buying me needles is just the sort fo lovely thing he does, especially since he has never knitted, nor did my grandmother so it is something entirely out of his legue ... plus he managed to order them online.

hahaha! I love it! I got my harmony set for my b-day (from my hubby- ordered by me though!) & yarn from my sister.

I used to date a guy in the SCA & my bro-in-law is a big DD player & DM- we all love ren faires & you would fit right in!

Happy B-day!

ETA- That axe may come in handy if your project isn't turning out well, or when you need to cut yarn.
