b-day and norwegian purl

My twin brother and I turned 30  on August 10th, my Mom had a dinner planned with our family the Saturday following… to my surprise i showed up at my parents house to a whole backyard of people under a rented tent!!   I cant even begin to describe the feeling (i did backup and hide after I came around the corner into the backyard, i was like huh?!   this doesnt make sense!   hehe)…. the work my family did to put it together (my mom NEVER throws huge parties), the people who drove from far away to be there, the food and drinks, the family, my twin brother and i opening presents together, everyone smiling… it was the greatest thing, i had butterflies in my stomach the whole afternoon, it was too much… BUT TOTALLY FUN!!   and super cool… i’ll NEVER forget it…

i got some cool gifts too   ;-)   check these out…

I got a reminder call that a hat pattern of mine will be in Knit N’ Style, the issue goes on sale November 28th, woo hoo!   it’s made with Karaoke and I heard the photo came out awesome…

So the episode of “Uncommon Threads” that was on last month featured this crochet mini-trash-bin made out of twine… any interest in the pattern??   i’ll write it up is so… it’s pretty cute, i keep alot of magazines in mine… and speaking of the show, the next episode that I’m in will be on August 28th, eek!

    As for the pattern for the Trash Can , where would I find that? It is so cute. Perfect to hold mags beside my Yarn chair.

    Good luck this weekend. I lnreead of your fiber because of MD Sheep & Wool. I didn't find your booth this year (but will be my FIRST stop in 2013) but saw yarn purchased by others on the bus. So impressed. I am really glad I joined your sock yarn club. Now I just need to knit faster .
