Happy Birthday Mom!

Dear Mom,

Happy Birthday! So, you know those fingerless gloves you hinted at for your birthday, well, um. How should I put this?

Hmmmm......can I distract you for a second instead?

Well, I was going to knit the gloves for you last weekend, but instead invited you to join the kids and I at Lemos Farm. You understand, right? Family time instead of knitting time.

So, tonight, when you open your birthday gift and see this....

(pick ONE! just one...you pick...no, no, not all)

just remember all the fun we had this weekend. And know that I love you! And that you should have the gloves in time for the new year (I hope!)!

Happy happy birthday Mom!
xoxo your favorite Irishgirlie



Hmm...not sure that is going to smooth over the late gift, but hopefully mom will understand! She understands the designing committments, especially since she is my fabulous sock model!

Happy Birthday Irishgirlie's mom! My mom also shares the pain/joy of a knitter daughter. I've given many not-quite-knitted-that-just-LOOKS-like-balls-of-yarn presents in my day as well.

Happy Birthday, IrishMom!

I know your pain though, I decided about a week ago I need to knit two pairs of fingerless gloves for Christmas. And the people they're for are visiting from Tuesday. And the baby doesn't allow much knitting time....

Happy birthday Mom! As the Oma (grandmother) of two wee Irishgirlies I know Mom will agree that everyday as a mom is special and fingerless gloves on "actual birthday +?" are just as wonderful as fingerless gloves on "actual" date itself. I'm far away working in Kuwait right now but next summer on my birthday perhaps I'll be able to go with my wee girls out on an excursion to Lemos Farm. The memories of the family time with your mom will keep her fingers warm until the gloves are done! Linda

What a great gift, birthday wishes from my daughter's friends. Sooo special. love all the comments but Cindy definitely gets my vote Carrie (Ha ha) Tonight's dinner with my girls was the best, and I have had several wonderful memories on this day. I'm so blessed.
