Hooray for birthdays
For those of you who kept up with the month of celebrations, you might think that I had received all the presents I was due. Well, we had a mini exchange of presents on Sunday - very knitting related. Here's my dad - it's not his birthday.
Here's my mum with her alpaca silk. It was her birthday a few weeks ago but we decided I wouldn't post her yarn. She hasn't been knitting much lately because she ran out of yarn and it was too hot so she's very pleased with her birthday present and all the other yarn I'd been hoarding for her.
And here is my present! An alpaca shrug designed by Sian Luyken and featured in Simply Knitting a few months ago. I know Sian from Angelknits and her shrug was the front cover design.
It is so wonderful!
