B-day presents

stitch.jpgI had a wonderful 34th birthday. It was quiet and simple but very nice. My thoughtful hubby took me out to dinner with the two little guys and I ate a few very delicious avocado spring roll appetizers and a very large bowl of the most tasty vegan pasta dish loaded with eggplant, broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts. After dinner, we went home to eat the most delicious homemade vegan chocolate cake (made by me but frosted by my boys) then we opened gifts. The two boys got for me (via daddy) a very beautiful peridot ring. It is really very gorgeous. And my very very thoughtful hubby bought me this book, Stitch ‘n bitch: the knitter’s handbook , to encourage and support my continued quest of learning to knit. All very exciting. I read the first 4 pages to my son for his bedtime story(sometimes I can get away with reading just about anything as long as I make it sound interesting with animated voices). Probably would have looked pretty funny from an outsider- me reading about knitting in several different animated voices. Fortunately, the first few pages of the book are about the author’s family and not about the actual knitting process. Still, probably only very slightly interesting to a 4 year old.

I have found a knitting group in my area thanks to Krista. She suggested looking up a group on meetup dot com. I will try to go next month since they only meet once every month and January’s meeting was on my birthday. I’m both excited and nervous to go check it out.

    Ha ha, I love the idea of reading a knitting book as a night-time story. I must try it !
