Thank You Thank You Thank You

Wow, I can't thank you enough for all the wonderful messages I received for my birthday.  I am so grateful to you all.  It made my birthday extra special to hear from so many of you.

I'm leaving the calendar unchanged for a few more days so that I can carry on celebrating.

I had an amazing weekend.  Firstly in Sheffield with Grace and then in Lincoln.

Our hotel looked up to the Cathedral, which was beautifully lit in the evening.

The view from the windows.

Lincoln is a beautiful city.  We've been there before and I loved it so much, I chose to go back there for my birthday weekend.

The weather wasn't great but we got out and about to see the sights.

Cup of tea and some cake - with a little knitting time
thrown in.

Grace knitted me some lovely socks and also gave me the remains of the ball of wool.

The colours are just perfect.  I think I'll make some fingerless mittens or wrist warmers with the remains.

For my birthday I received lots of lovely presents, including this book.

Who would have thought there could be so many ways to cast on and off in knitting.  My aim is to try and sample them all!

Whilst in Sheffield, I topped up my Stylecraft Special DK, adding some new colours to my stash.  And I couldn't resist stocking up on yellow and pink ribbons.

I also bought some of this lovely Alice in Wonderland fabric.

How happy I was to come home with such lovely goodies.

So, once again, thank you for your thoughts and wishes.  I think I need to come back down to earth and start getting back into the swing of things.  It's Eve's 21st birthday next week, so I had better get myself organised before she comes back home on Sunday.
