My birthday weekend was fantastic. I spent the morning of my birthday having brunch at a new local creperie with a few of my favorite lady friends. These are some of the beautiful gifts they gave me.
This and the next skein are more Hazel Knits gems, this time from my friend, Missy. I want to eat these colors. The top skein is Saffron, and the green one is Euphorbia.
My friend, Susan, gave me this book and the one in the picture below. I’ve been wanting to buy this to read to Princess Mozzarella for awhile now, so I was very excited to receive it. If I can indoctorinate her with a love of knitting from the womb and beyond, all the better.
Susan also gave me beautiful bookmarks to use as well. My friend Jennifer Rae gave me the pink bracelet and some pastries, and Grace gave me the adorable little bag with a gift certificate to our LYS inside. I neglected to take a picture of them, but Karen gave me a lovely bunch of flowers from the farmer’s market that morning as well.
This final skein of yarn is from my boss at Hand Held. She asked me to pick something out that I’ve been coveting, and this is a skein of Colinette Jitterbug in Wasabi.
The day was relaxing overall, and then Matt joined me with four other couples for dinner at a local gourmet grilled cheese restaurant, Hammontrees. We had coffee at the creperie (which is across the street and I obviously can’t get enough of), then we went to a friend’s house and chatted until about 11 pm. I haven’t been up that late and out at the same time in awhile. It was a fantastic evening.
And…the fella gave me two hours of prenatal massage, with an additional half an hour of foot massage. I’m ready to use one of those massages this week. I’m holding on with the workload in this summer class and the packing, but what’s getting to me lately is waking up at 3:30 or 4:00 in the morning and not being able to go back to sleep for hours, if at all. I’m ready to invest in a more comfortable couch.
Oh, the socks I’m itching to cast on…
