Happy Birthday to me

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.

happy birthday! That is a great gift. I'm tired of wrapping my skeins around the back of dining room table chairs.
