This is what I got on Saturday. My birthday is actually tomorrow on the dreaded 6-6-06, for which I am going to ignore. I am going to be 23, (a baby I know). So a bit about what I got. My mother went a bit pink ceramic crazy for me. She loves knick-knacks and things so I got plenty to decorate my home. My aunt (mother's twin sister) got me the adorable Hello Kitty socks. I am a sock fanatic. I love both handknit socks and novelty socks. I have almost nothing else in my sock collection. Then my lovely husband got me the sock blockers (woohoo!) and a new ball winder. My old one I lost the clamp to it some time ago at one of those great outings with my spinning wheel. So my husband transformed my old one into a portable one by taking of the metal thingy on the bottom and now I have a permanent one that will stay at home. I love tools! I am also really lucky to have someone who supports my habits =). I also got some birthday money and Sarah gave me a gift certificate to Woodland Woolworks, which is one of the places that I am headed to on Wednesday. I have my eye on a yarn meter and perhaps a new ultra sturdy knitting bag. So we will see what I end up with.

My Birthday part 1
Why is this part 1? Well, because my wonderful husband has promised to take me out Wednesday to spend some birthday money so I will put up shots of that too =)
