Happy Birthday Princess

Today is my niece C birthday, the princess is 5. She is going to Chucky Cheese for her birthday for pizza, games and large animatron stuffed mice playing instruments. I am sure that she will have a great time. So as you can tell, I am not making the drive to Bakersfield today. I spoke with my brother and they had planned on coming north for our Mimi's (paternal grandmother) birthday March 18th. She is turning 85 and does not travel that much anymore so she does not miss out on C's birthday they are going to have some cake for her to along with Mimi's birthday. In the effort to conserve gas, miles and time, we are going to kill two birds with one stone and see them all the same day March 17th St. Patty's Day (the day before Mimi's B-day.) And I will be armed with a new t-shirt for my niece C that is perfect for that day, it is pink with the word princess printed on the front out of little tinny metallic shamrocks. Which leads me to the best news off all......I now can go to Stitches!!!!! Sunday I will be there at 10am ready to get an eye full of fantastic yarns.

Also, I am so excited about the latest purchase via eBay. At the very highest recommendations from several talented knitters including Lori, I purchased Sensational Knitted Socks at a FANTASTIC price! It should be here any day now. And that is great timing because my Knit Picks order for 2 circulars size 2 and some sock yarn should be here today. I am so excited to join the world of sock knitting. Maybe I will find some sock yarn at Stitches that I can't live without. Oh, wait, I promised R that I would knit him a vest for golfing, oh shoot, I guess I am just going to have to buy more yarn! My list for Stitches will be some red sock yarn (for me, come on, its red right) and washable wool for R's golf vest and some notions that will make my knitting experiance better. I am going to make every effort to stick to the list. At the moment I have two projects for myself, Refined Raglan Interweave Winter 2006 and Lady Eleanor that is keeping quite busy. So I am bringing backup to keep me from buying stuff I don't need at the moment. Wish me luck!!


  1. I got that book myself last month, after I finish these current wip, the eiffel tower socks, I plan on studying it throughly.

  2. Hey there - Delia from Wine & Needles. I get that a lot about my last name but we aren't related to Fred. We're the OTHER family in the valley, one could say ;)
