For me!

Thank you to everyone for all my birthday wishes - here, on Ravelry, on Facebook, by phone and email. Thank you thank you. I had an excellent day. Highlights included cake for breakfast, a short work day, a lunch with my Love, and decorated cupcakes from my boys.


I also finished these (one day late) as a special birthday present to myself. I got the yarn from the retreat in November and decided to make them plain old socks. I wanted the yarn to be the focal point on the socks, which it is. I will remember starting these socks while being surrounded by knitting greats.


Next up, some more Crazy Cat socks in some yarn I came across in the stash that is too darned nice to be collecting dust. KPPPM. I have decided that I want to knit myself a pair of socks each month of the year. Considering the size of my foot (10 inches long people - that's like 2-3 inches longer than most of your feet....that's approximately 3000 more stitches I need to knit per sock compared to the average foot) this is still a large undertaking. So, pair #2, Tall Tibetan Socks.
