Warming Up For a Party

All patterns 30% off this week onlyMy birthday is later this week. Half of me wants to hide under a rock (with a fizzy drink), and the other part of me wants to host a last-minute barbecue. Hard to decide.

I have learned from years past that throwing your own birthday party is actually a fair bit of work (and dishes), even if you have a potluck. Oh, but parties are delightfully fun! I am so torn.

In the meantime, off I go to dye my grey hair, sneak chocolate covered raisins out of the hall closet, and prepare my Rosemont for blocking. I just cast off the final stitches, and I think it actually might fit.

Minor miracle.

I want to share the birthday love with you! I am so grateful to all of you who bop into this space. Thank you! I can’t wait until they invent teleportation so we can all just beam over to a nice tropical island each Friday evening for World Wide Knit Night (with cocktails that have umbrellas!) We can take turns picking the island. Luckily there are so many to choose from. Bali first, perhaps? In the meantime, this will have to suffice.

Oh bother.

To spread the love, all the patterns in my Ravelry shop are 30% off this week with the code Birthday 30. This offer ends at the end of the month, so act fast. (Subscribers: check your inbox for an email with a 50%-off coupon code. If you have yet to subscribe, please sign up so you don’t miss out on the next sale or giveaway! I won’t share your email address. Ever.)

This special offer includes my two latest patterns that I just released earlier this month, Metamorphosis and Tulipland. Wowsers.

Okay knitters, off I go to count my old-age wrinkles. And block my sweater. Vote for your favorite tropical knitting island in the comment box, and please be sure to take advantage of the pattern sale before the end of the month. There’s no time like the present to go shopping. My Ravelry Pattern Shop is here.

    Happy Birthday! I’m a firm believer in celebrating a birthday all week if not all month. Thank you very much for the discount. I just purchased the Twist Shawl. I can’t wait to start it.

    Let’s hold the World Wide Knit Night on one of the Hawaii islands. Kauai? Oahu? Maui?

    Invite your friends to a pub, restaurant or casual bar to celebrate. No clean up but lots of Fizzy drinks. You CAn have your cake and eat it too!

    Happy knitting,

    An early happy birthday to you. Can’t wait to see how you celebrate!

    Hope this is the happiest birthday EVER!!!!! I’ll be toasting you with a bit of chocolate later in the week!!! Now, for my rebel vote….I’m not much of one for all those hot tropical places, so my vote goes to either Iceland (which I’ve never visited but which is very very high on my ‘list’) or Shetland, which I HAVE visited and desperately want to go back to—-both of which will require lots of wonderful wooly goodness. Sure you don’t want to reconsider your island destination?

    Yay Happy Birthday to you!! I hope you have a wonderful day however you celebrate! I always joke that I’m going to escape to Aruba, but really I’m more of a mountain girl so it’d be Colorado for me. Now, I’m off to peruse some patterns…. 🙂
