birfday goodies

Birthday gifts from my brotherWhat would a birthday be without presents? My brother kindly sent me these from amazon: Mason-Dixon knitting and one of my favorite shows EVER, arrested development, season 1. yes, i am STILL upset that it was cancelled. i'm x-ing my fingers that the movie will get made. at any rate, i've already begun a simple extraneous project from the book for secret but soon to be known purposes.

10 balls Elann Baby Silk and Edition Rebecca #10my present to me myself and i also arrived. 10 balls of elann baby silk in aubergine and the edition rebecca pattern #10, cleverly titled, "Narrow Sweater with Eyelets." i have decided that i will be allowed to make this one as soon as i finish butterfly. it's kind of the same concept, only the fall version, and i really have no excuse to be stalled out on butterfly. my summer of lace is almost over and how humiliating that i'm not close to being finished yet.

and that's about all she wrote for now. my mom gave me a gift certificate to amazon which i think i will use to purchase the first season of animaniacs on DVD (another of my most favorite shows of all time). my dad's present is on its way. methinks i may have more gifts to show within the next few days.


  1. Yay! I love the silk! And what a great brother sending you knitting books and DVDs!

  2. hey, happy birthday! (belated?) the aubergine color looks like it will be smashing with that lace pattern. I've purchased 2 rebecca pattern books before, but with my difficulty comprehending their instructions, i'm hesitant to actually make something from their directions! I hope it turns out well for you.

  3. Very pretty! You sure know how to treat a knitter well! :o)

    I can't see/hear aubergine anymore without thinking about the scene from Steel Magnolias where Clairee Belcher described the football team's new uniforms as aubergine. Miss Ouiser told her that no one cared. LOL!

  4. Heh heh, happy birthday, old lady! :) Sorry I cannot shower you with fabulous gifts, but I did get a notice that my Rowan order shipped, so you'll have my Rowan 30 for a belated gift. Enjoy your new toys! (Too bad you can't knit on Butterfly AND watch Arrested Development at the same time...)
