On this day...

Friday, 6 January 2012

I was born...


Mr F gave me a wonderful pure wool cardigan from www.woolovers.com which is so warm, I feel like Im wearing a Rayburn... Love it!!!


I have brightened it up with a corsage...


And I popped some pink stripe-ies on...


And played with wool this morning...


Deciding to marry my handspuns with my other yarns to use for making hats...


And so a little perusing of the pile began...


And a hat was made!

I had my birthday cake (lemon cake made by Littlest) at 11 oclock this morning... with 6 cups of tea... because if you cant be decadent and greedy on your own birthday, when can you?!

Last notes: The en masse POD bags have nearly killed me... thank heavens Im not working today! I start shoes next week...

  13. Ren, a joyful, peaceful, creative new year to you AND a wonderful birthday. When I read your description of your day I thought to myself how close it was to my idea of heaven on earth; tea, yarn, pink and green stripes. Perfect. Pink and green make a fine pair.

  19. I am generally happy with The Cashmere Gallery products. They are one of the very few outlets and online shops that offer 100% Pure Cashmere Clothing their range includes Cashmere Cardigans, sweaters, pullovers, capes, scarves, pashmina, stoles, knitted hats, gloves and socks for men and women. The quality of the cashmere is very high and finishing is very good. i would definitely shop here again and recommend them
