Milestones

First, I want to say Happy Birthday to Chicago. Yes, this second city is 168 today. And it even survived a cow and a lantern...

Second, the person, or rather the person whose magazine inspired me to learn to knit is out of prision today--Martha Stewart. I learned from an article in one of the Living issues several years back. I have to give her kudos for that.

It's a busy day with all this celebration!!

Speaking of celebrations, how cool is it when your non-knitting friends buy you knitting stuff for your birthday? A really good friend of mine since 5th grade(!) and his girlfriend spent sometime at the bookstore picking out knitting books for me. How awesome! The books I received are:




Well, I do already have two of the books they gave me, so I just acted surprised and happy. The book I got in exchange for SnB and Knitted Toys (plus a store credit):


Here is the book I was allowed to purchase when Jeremy and I went to the bookstore (he got some books too, so it was only fair):



Wow!! Guess I better get knitting so I can use these books!!
