>Hip Hip Hooray!

>It’s my birthday today & as always St George’s Day to boot. I really wish it were a public holiday & then I won’t have to use a days holiday to ensure that I don’t have to work every April 23rd.

When I went on the Rowan course I took advantage of the £1 balls of yarn & access to hundreds of books & came home with my birthday present(s):

RYC Cashcotton DK
RYC Cashcotton DK in cool

RYC Cashcotton DK
RYC Cashcotton DK in pool

I have a variety of patterns earmarked for the Cashcotton DK in both RYC Summer & Cafe book one.

Blue & Annie
Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Chunky in Mink to make Hardy from JB38

Jaeger Aqua cotton
Jaeger Aqua cotton to make Annie from JB34

I also picked up some books from Rowan for my birthday:

knitting patterns
birthday books

and more from Up Country which weren’t for my birthday but had to come home with me anyway.

I’ve just got to shift more weight so that I can start making all these garments for myself! I’ve been running 4 times now & am enjoying it DH & DD got me a pacer watch (in addition to the yarn above) & I’m now running 90 seconds at a time. Oscar is still walking but I’ll get there in time for him to run with me properly when he’s a year old. I’m off now to have a shower before making the most of my day off work & will be visiting the LYS this morning
