…. and I got knitting stuff!!!
Nick bought me Knit Fix by Lisa Kartus. He also got me two of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s books, which I already had and he didn’t know so they will be exchanged for other knitting books (there’s a few I’d like to get). He thought I didn’t have them yet, but I bought them while I was in Kentucky and then my Lace Swap Pal gave me the one I didn’t have yet, so now I have all three. I don’t fault him for it, since he didn’t know, and I honestly thought that there was so much wonderful thought put into it that I can hardly stand to take them back! He’s such a sweetie when it comes to gift giving. I never have to write out a list or have him just let me get what I want. *swoon* I love him to bits!
Nathaniel got me Lego Star Wars II for PSP. YAY!! I’d been a little sad that I had to return the version for PS2 since we’d only rented it from the video store and I’d been wanting to play it. I’ve already beat a level and I’m sure that I’ll be losing some knitting time to playing my PSP for a while ;o)
I opened my Grandma’s gift that she sent to me. I was going to wait, but since I was opening everything else tonight (since I’ll be the only one home tomorrow), I figured I’d open it. She sent me two knitting books, enough yarn for two of the patterns, earrings, and a breast cancer pin with pink stones. The books are The Knitting Experience: The Knit Stitch (Book 1) by Sally Melville and The Knitting Experience: The Purl Stitch (Book 2) by Alexis Xenakis and Sally Melville. I thought it was a really thoughtful gift because she is the person who introduced knitting to me when she sent me some yarn, bamboo circular needles, and a pattern for a hat.
All in all, some great birthday gifts! :o)
PS: My Sock-ret Pal? Just so you know, I put a link to my questionnaire over in the side bar right under the blurb about me. Figured it’d be easier for you to find there instead of having to search through posts.
