Birthday Stash

I think it could be said that around the time of my birthday I tend to want to shower myself with gifts. Last year my yarn stash saw a bit of an increase. This year however, I'm not really feeling like knitting for myself since I can't fit into anything. I still have the itch though, but how to scratch it? Luckily, I was the recipient of some pretty awesome gifts. 

My brother sent me 60 Quick Baby Knits. Very appropriate considering my birthday fell on Mother's Day this year. I've already started planning a few projects for Baby Luscious. 

My friend Amy gifted me with The Knitter's Life List. This is a really fun read with a lot of ideas on how to expand your knitted horizons. 

And the big hit of the night...

was my new set of Addi Clicks! How did my husband know this is exactly what I wanted? 

It may have had something to do with the email and link I sent him in March. 

Now I really want to cast on for something new but can't decide what. I finished my Featherweight Cardigan last night so I'll be sharing that soon!


  1. A belated Happy Birthday to the Mother-to-be!

    I have the 6o Quick Knits book and have knit the cover sweater - in the right color a great look for a boy!
