A New Year!

Happy Birthday to me!

This year...year 36...I think it is going to be a good one! And just in case I wasn't sure, well, Disco made sure it started right!

I tried not to cry as I opened up this very special gift. She knit me a pair of socks. Socks that Rock, no less. Other than my Sockapalooza pal a few years ago, this is my only other pair of socks knit for me! Thank you thank you Disco!

Love

Aren't they just lovely!! And the gorgeous shawl pin! And Teddy, he made me a golden gate bridge birthday card! I will wear these socks knit with love at Stitches West this year! You'll be here in spirit Disco, til next year!

It has been a great birthday so far. Its going to be a good year.

Now bring on the Knitting Olympics!!

Happy belated birthday. the socks are gorgeous! And the only person who can truly appreciate the gift of hand-knit socks is one who has knit some herself.
