My 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.
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.
