Happy Birthday to Me and ColorJoy!

Well, today is my 45th birthday, and my weblog’s 1st birthday. I celebrated so far by getting our drains cleaned and watching Teletubbies. I love Teletubbies but since I never seem to remember to turn a TV on, I hadn’t seen them in about two years. It was good fun.

Tony called and so he’s stopping over here to show me a few hats he has knit, for a few minutes before I go to JoAnn’s for my first 8 hour shift. It will be great to see him, although I’m sorry we can’t hang out longer.

Everyone have a wonderful day. If I were not working the retail thing, I’d stay home all day. Check out the “Buy Nothing Day” page at adbusters if you are interested in an alternative way of spending today. You will have your own opinion on this, I’m sure, and it’s OK if we disagree.

This picture I believe is my 16th birthday. I got glasses when I was 14, so I was at least 15 and no older than 17. Mom loved taking pictures of us with our birthday cakes every year. We called this type of cake “chocolate dribble cake” because there was a glaze on top that dribbled down the sides. The filling was chocolate whipped cream, yum!

    Many happy returns of the day Lynn! (I just love that phrase, it’s so victorian. But that doesn’t mean it’s not true.)As far as the Kureyon goes, it does knit very nicely into entrelac, and there are some very good free entrelac instructions on the web. The first one is hard and after that, well it’s easy. Learning it is like learning how to turn heels, though, I’m sorry to say. But in the same way, after you’ve learned how you love to do it.
    I don’t mind the knots in Kureyon, it’s the scratchiness. Right now I am knitting some lime green Mexican Wave into a hoodie –I wear my old grey one around the house all the time and suddenly the urge for brightness overcame me. Mexican Wave is acrylic but it has color changes like Noro. It’s cheaper than Noro and much softer although as a fiber snob I am embarassed I like it.

    Happy Birthday, Lynn!!

    I also favor the spirit of Buy Nothing Day; I did not observe it today, but all my $$ went into our tiny local economy, so I think that’s alright for this year.

    Cheers to you, and I hope you enjoyed your day!

    And now I know what you wished for each year, a kitty. When you finally got him, you named him after your dear Grandma. He was all you could ever wish for in a cat. Wishes do indeed come true.
