I celebrated my birthday last week, and was thoroughly spoilt by all.
First Katie surprised me with two lovely skeins of greeny goodness...
yes, that's Malabrigo - my first time. I'm too nervous to use it, just patting it at present! I feel it may be a hat, though - perhaps one of these?
and some beautiful green variegated 4ply from Dyelicious
I'd already done some spoiling of my own and had purchased two skeins of Katie's wool. Some of her divine Olivia cashmerino, in the limited edition "Royale" colourway...
and a skein of her Ginger yarn, which has a silver thread running through it. Lily has this earmarked for legwarmers - hmm, we'll see?!
Then my brother and sister-in-law organised a gift voucher from Sarah Durrant for me and I bought this...
Colinette Jitterug in Ginger Cinnabar and Oyster Blush.
and then on Saturday night my girls booked me a room in the city and took me out on the town, to two of the best little alley bars in Melbourne - Double Happiness for cocktails and Golden Monkey for dinner and more cocktails.
it's been the best birthday, ever :)
