I'm having a lovely birthday today! I have recieved some lovely presents - books from my mom-in law, including Shadow Knitting and the Scarf Style book! (I'm so happy with those - there's a couple scarves that have gone on my list...). And, a heart-shaped Silicone baking pan, and the soundtrack from the Boy from Oz (I love Amazon wish lists, don't you :-)
My husband has also given me a lovely shirt that I had admired at JJill and reluctantly put back, and a wonderful ring that I had seen in an ad (oddly enough) and fell in love with. Doesn't it look like a musical staff? I need to get it sized (I have large fingers :-) )
And my girls gave me the bound copy of 1602. Very cool.
Its been a hectic, but nice day. (Tuesdays are always hectic)
Yesterday was nice also - we never make a huge deal out of Valentine's day, but I do get flowers. Aren't they lovely?
And, I got the new Knitter's yesterday, and the new IK today! What more could a girl ask for?
Trivia - we did very well - 13th out of 72. It is a drop from last year (where we got 10th), but still very good for a relatively small team, with no local connections. 50 hours of insane trivia. I got about 8 hours of sleep Friday and Saturday nights combined.... but we have such fun! On to the next contest - in April in Stevens Point, WI. This is the biggie - its the largest radio trivia contest. 400 teams (or so) participate - and its a wild time. 54 hours non-stop. I need to sleep ahead of time :-)
And - I finished the knitting, and half the seaming on the baby sweater. Which is good, 'cause my gifting opportunity is Saturday!
Sabrina and I will be participating in the Dulann project! Hosted by the amazing Ryan, its a project to create hand-knits and fleece blankets for homeless children in Mongolia. There's been a challenge laid down that we can't even get to 500 items. Them's fighting words! 95 knitters (at least) are participating right now - that's only 5 items each! We can do it! Right?
