happy birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to me!

(Me, some 27 or 28 years ago)

(I come from a long line of crafty women ... my mom made that dress for me.)

I treated myself to a birthday gift ... I ordered several sets of stitch keepers for my DPNs. I've been knitting socks on DPNs again, and I'm getting annoyed by the "porcupine effect".

Hopefully, these will help contain the pokey ends. (Thanks Beth S. for sending me the link to these!) I'll let you know what I think once they arrive.

    (the dpn holders are a brilliant idea. I must buy a set or three.)

  • Happy Birthday! I hope you had a great day and you were spoiled rotten.

    The dress by your Mother is so cute.

  • Happy Birthday!! I use those stitch keepers and I love them. They're also quite a nice way to keep a set of dpns together when you're not using them.
