Happy Birthday to Me!

It's my birthday and Oh! what a good one it's been. I had hoped to receive a couple of gifts and my family outdid themselves. I asked for a bit of yarn, a yarn trinket or a little bit of money to buy yarn. To my surprise and delight, I received all three!

First up is this bizarre contraption - - a wool winder. Only a knitter would go "Ohhhhhhh" when they opened a box to find this in it. I can't wait to break it in on the my second gift which was...

YARN, YARN and even more YARN!
You know you're an addict when you stop shopping by 4 oz. skeins and/or 50 gram balls and start looking for multiple pounds. As a an additional gift, I was also given the time to do whatever it was that I wanted to do. And that was.................

Beside my woman's size 10 foot is a woman's size 8 unfelted slipper.

Thank you Mohamed, Andie, Skander, Dad, Joan and Denise for making this the best birthday ever!

P.S. Next year, I'm going to be 40 and dreadfully depressed - - can we do this again, same time next year? LOL
