Thanks for Sharing

I'd like to take this opportunity to send some belated Birthday wishes to Fibreholic Patty. Her birthday was yesterday and she very generously shared her birthday cake with me (her hubby baked her a chocolate cheesecake! What a man!). I'm sure she won't mind if you drop in and wish her well, either.

I finally met the adorable Iain, and although he wasn't in top form, he didn't mind hamming it up for the camera.

Look what I knit last night.
My very first tam, in about 2 hours. I have to sew in a couple ends and block it, but there it is. It will match my first ever pair of gloves. Nice.
And today I will be knitting one for my Mama in yellow (peach?) out of Rio De La Plata. It's a hand spun, kettle dyed 100% Uruguayan Wool. She's been obsessed with wanting yellow hand knits lately, so I hope it will be yellow enough for her liking. And of course if she doesn't like it, I might be forced to reclaim it. Forced. Yeah, okay. HEH
The Debbie Bliss sweater is chugging along nicely. I've just begun a third skein, but now I have to try it on again to see if it's to the point where I can knit only the body in the round. I love top down sweaters. love love love
Most of the first sleeve is done on the First Born's sweater. I really must try to find some bamboo dpns in 5.5mm.

You knit that in one evening? Wow.

That's a nice tam. Almost makes me wish I liked wearing hats :)
