happy birthday to meeeeee

i got myself a birthday present. that's allowed, right?

i saw on elann that they have the solitary rebecca patterns. i have been in love with this lacy sweater for a very long time. the pattern was on sale for $1.80. how could i pass that up? and while i was at it, i ordered some Peruvian Collection Baby Silk in Aubergine to make it. i realize i just made a similarly colored top. but what can i say...i think it's my new favorite.

a harmless little present to myself. a mere buck and a quarter for every one of my years.

    Have a celebration!

    Oooh, I love that Handknit Holidays book. I have a huge desire to knit those cream stockings with the lace up the back.

  8. Oh, now the contest has like, "guidelines" and stuff. Sheesh. Now I'm gonna look like I'm just here for the goods. I'm not! I swear! I recently enrolled with bloglines and am finally a regular reader! But since you asked, my favorite color is green (though really, I like all bright fun colors) and I prefer plant fibers (cotton is my friend). And if I have to hazard a guess as to your age, I'm going with 26.
