THE BIG 60!
It's one that has to come, but I feel sure there must be some mistake. I really don't know where the time has gone and certainly feel that old! Anyway, just to assure me that I am, I received a very scrummy courgette and dark chocolate cake from an old friend. Yum! Cake too from my great pal Helen (Josiekitten), my favourite Millionaire's Shortbread. Yum! Yum!
Especially good was a visit from from my lovely friend. We had a good old catch up and as always I was spoilt with lovely carefully chosen gifts.
There was a lovely Three Bags Full bag and a beautiful skein of cashsilk lace from Sweet Georgia Yarns. This yarn just has to be one of favourites; it's so, so warm and lovely to knit with. It will become an 'Almost Ovals' scarf.
Then there were some cute little 'Anyone for Tennis' stitch markers and a useful needle gauge (the numbers won't rub off this one!) and last but not least a very beautiful glass 'wish stick' made by Cornish glass designer, Jo Downs. What a lucky girl I am!
Not much longer to go now before the end of term, when hopefully my knitting rate will pick up. Let's hope so!
