Birthday goodies
I had a lovely birthday yesterday and had my first real yarn splurge...



This is my first Noro (it's Cashmere Island)

I just I'm good enough to knit it all up nicely

Happy birthday.

If this is your first real yarn splurge you realize that it is all down hill from here. Tomorrow you are going to realize that your need that next size needle. While at YLS there is that new yarn. And then there that nifty new knitting bag.

You are on a slippery slope of fun and enjoyment. Enjoy your birthday yarn.

Well the Noro is hopefully going to be the bolero from the Mini Designer Knits book, and the cotton is for the 'Hate Plastic Knit' bag that's in the latest issue of Simply Knitting magazine
