Last week was my birthday. I turned 32, although I’ve been telling myself that since hitting 30 I can actually go backwards in age and so this year I am 28! Having said that, an article in today’s Daily Mail says that women feel at their most beautiful at age 32. Not sure if that’s true for me – I found a very long grey hair yesterday that I quickly pulled out 😀
Anyway, the most exciting present I had was a Nintendo Wii. Much fun has been had over the past few days with family and friends. I did get some knitting related gifts though too, which I wanted to share:
A crafter’s version of Monopoly, called Stitchopoly. Yet to play it, but it looks like a nice alternative to the traditional game.
Custom Knits by Wendy Bernard which contains quite a few patterns that I’d like to try. I already have yarn in my stash that I know would be ideal for two of the jumpers.
Things I learned from knitting and Yarn Harlot by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Stephanie is well known in online knitting communities as has been writing a knitting blog for many years now. She’s penned several knitting books and I’d had these two on my wishlist for a little while.
