And to you, too! I hope you’ve gotten more goodies than you deserve- I know I have. My hubby and I decided not to gift each other this VD as I just got my embroidery machine and he just got this, which I am determined to learn to ride. I haven’t ridden in over 10 years, but I could do it once, and I shall do it again. My new mantra is, I will not hit the van again, I will not hit the van again…
A friend sent me flowers- thank you Kim!
My SP4 sent me yummy sock yarn and candy. I can’t wait to use the yarn. My most favoritest needles are a set of #4 Lantern Moon dps that I’m always looking for something with which to knit with them. (Did I say that right?)
Elann sent me yarn for my spring cardi and a hat and scarf set in case it actually gets cold before spring. The book was only $1.99, and it has the most adorable patterns in it.
And the maillady brought me the new IK. She loves me.
I finished Hubby’s black scarf, I’m up to the yoke on the H2H, and I knit a couple of bookmarks for gifting.

We birthday partied for DD#1 Saturday. She wanted a pink star cake, so a pink star cake she had, dag nab it. I baked the cakes Friday, and it took me 5 #%^& hours Saturday morning to cut the stars out and ice it to my satisfaction. The points kept crumbling, so they are mostly icing. Not that anyone minded.
DD seemed happy with the sweater I gave her,
And we were honored with a surprise appearance by Sponge Bob Square Pants- well, once he found his pants. There was a bit of an embarrassing moment.
Of course, there were crabby patties for all.
