Today my best friend and my family put together a wonderful day to celebrate my birthday.
I don't actually turn 60 until monday, but to get the most people together it needed to be done on a weekend.
They treated us to dinner at one of the better restaurants in the area. Then they took us all bowling. I think all 22 of us from 2 - 66 had a good time.
My bestie made both an eclair cake and 3 candy bar pies for dessert so we all enjoyed ourselves.
I got some great gifts.
A ball of very pretty thread to tat with
Purples and greens this will be very pretty worked up.
My daughter must have done some research and got me some sock yarn from Pat Fly.
Just this morning I was doing some research on NZ Possum to see what exactly that is, and it really is fur from an Australian Possum that is over running New Zealand. From what I understand when you mix the fur from the Possum with the wool to make yarn, then wash the item you have knitted, the Possum fibers "fluff" up and make really nice thick warm clothing.
These yarns are going to be fun to work with. Right now my Circular Sock Machine (CSM) is visiting the specialist. It needs a bit of work before I can make any more socks on it. Once that gets back home I will be having some fun with it.
Thank you all for a wonderful day.
