I turned 26 today. Yay. Guess what my parents got me...
A swift! Since this is a knitting blog you all understand why this is a great gift. It's a nice wooden one too because it's all they had. Actually, my mom had to buy the store model because the order wasn't coming in for another two weeks.
I haven't done much knitting the last few days because I've been too busy. I babysat my friend's kids on Thursday, they're 5 and 1. I can't believe how big the baby has gotten. Time really does fly doesn't it?
I'm up to the fifth repeat of the basketweave pattern on Hanami. I'm really liking this pattern. I haven't memorized the chart so I have to pay more attention and make fewer mistakes. I've only had to rip back once. Still, I'll be glad when I get through this section and move on to the cherry blossom part. I probably won't be doing much knitting this weekend though because I have a friend coming over and then I'm going out for my birthday. Tomorrow is the first birthday of my friend's baby. As for next week... classes start. Eep.
