i’m having a pretty great birthday so far! lots of sitting around, relaxing, spinning, knitting, movie/tv watching…. when pete gets home from work around 10:30 he’s gonna take me out for a late dinner and dessert at rimsky’s, yummm. but i can’t decide where i want to go for dinner, since i want it to be small to save plenty of room for desserty goodness, and it needs to be quick since rimsky’s closes at midnight…. any recommendations? somewhere in southeast…
some things that have made me super happy today:
my brother matt’s birthday present to me – flight of the conchords dvd – which we watched late into the night last night. so so SO funny! highly recommended!!
sleeping in and pete bringing me stumptown coffee in bed, such a nice way to start the day.
lots of supersweet birthday comments/emails from family and friends, and happy fun feedback about the rap, yay! thanks everyone!!
spinning a prettytastic skein of yarn, practicing my plying, looking good. and pete gave me two spinning books! a great instructional one, and the beautiful pluckyfluff handspun revolution!
then knitting up the airplane through valentine clouds yarn i won from insubordknit into a great, fat+fluffy neckwarmer. love it!!
and now i have to tell you how hat attack went for me, it was so much fun! so, in this killer hat swap, you get assigned a target, who could live anywhere in the world, to try to “kill” by getting your hat to her/him as quickly as possible, before you receive a hat from your assassin. well, by complete coincidence, my target, kate, lives in my apartment complex, right across the yard! unbelievable right? so it was extra fun for us!
i finished knitting the hat at work yesterday, got home around 5:30, then i wanted to wait to attack until pete got home so he could photograph the event. so, i let her know of her impending death by putting my scary mask with the hat in the window, looking at her window.
then when he got home around 8, i put the mask on, grabbed a comic-ly giant knitting needle, and crept across the yard…
and i killed her! mwa ha ha ha!!
fun times! i’m so glad i did hat attack! if i hadn’t been assigned kate as my target, i probably never would have even known i lived across from a cool knitter! now i’m just waiting for my hat of doom to arrive in the mail and kill me… i hope it’s a good color!
