Happy Birthday . . .

to me!! 
Lots and Lots o' Candles

Yeah, it's my birthday today . . . older and perhaps wiser?  Ha ha, I hope so.  In any case, I'm definitely the happy crafter 'cuz yesterday my family gifted me the best gift.  Ever ("the best, Jerry.  The best!").

Wanna know what's in the case?  Maybe you already know 'cuz you own a set too.
Mystery Case

It's a complete set of Boye interchangeable needles!  Oh joy! 
Boye Interchangeable Needles

I love, love my regular Boye needles (and I can't even get them 'round here anymore 'cuz the store that carried it no longer does--I'm lookin' at you Walmart **grumble, grumble**).  And now I have the complete set from size 2.75mm to 10mm, with cable lengths from 20" to 36" (the later of which is next to impossible to find locally).

Tomorrow the family will be over to enjoy a celebratory BBQ, complete with cake, candles and more presents. And I've got Monday as a paid day-off for my birthday--nice little perk from my bosses 'cuz childcare workers aren't given the respect they deserve in this province and this was one small way for my bosses to say "thanks" for all our hard work . . . but I digress.  No time for soap boxes today.

I have loads more to share, but I'll save it for another day.  I'll just leave you to enjoy my lovely African violets (gift from one of my toddlers whose grandma shares the same birthday.  Wasn't that sweet?).

Have a happy day!


  1. well, a very happy day to you!

    and congrats on the needles -- such a perfect gift!

  2. Thanks Knitinsage! It truly is the perfect gift for me :)

  3. I'm just catching up with my blog-reading. Happy belated Birthday from me. I love African violets though haven't figured out the formula for getting them to flower!

  4. Thanks NioclaKnits. I hope the African violets survive. I don't exactly have a green thumb when it comes to houseplants.
