Happy Birthday, Mom!


From me, C, and your granddaughter, pictured on the right, we wish you the best.

Today is my mother’s 64th birthday. I don’t believe she’s that old (neither can she!). You wouldn’t know it from her new-found enthusiasm for knitting, specifically socks.

What better gift to give a new knitter without access to a LYS than a sock club membership where she’ll experience many different brands and patterns? Today she received some Mega Boots Stretch and a pretty Ripple sock pattern. These combined with the couple of Yarn Harlot books and Cat Bordhi‘s 2 circ book she received for xmas, she’ll have plenty to keep her busy.

Don’t worry. My dad got her a gift certificate to Blue Moon Fiber Arts so she can experience some gorgeously colored gems. We’ll have her knitting on all kinds of yarn.

And, for my birthday, I’m thinking of sending her some of Scout’s Swag so she can make me a pair!

    Wow. What a cute pug!!!
    I recently had the chance to celebrate my Dad’s 80th birthday–a different milestone — but one that reminded me of how great it is to have a good relationship with one’s parents. Rocky at times, but still nourishing and honest.

    Love the Frenchie! And the Jaywalker colourway. Pity it doesn’t fit-I’ve made that particular boob too.

    Thanks for all my birthday greetings. I’m really enjoying knitting socks, even if I did just rip out my last endeaver – only about 3″, but………………………………….I’m sure it won’t be the last.I plan to re do that rascal tomorrow.
