Emily's the knitter, Clare's the spinner, and we both like cocktails!

Birthday loveliness

Yep, it was over a week ago. I never said I was organised, or a prompt poster, but I am a grateful and happy recipient of various delights.

Fin made me a wonderful Pavlova (which I promptly pronounced incorrectly, he told me!) - My first, with passion-fruit. Delicious. No pics, we scoffed it rapidly! He also provided a rather beautiful handkerchief from India (one of his passions) properly hand-printed and everything (and apt as a I was having one of my snuffly allergy days). 

Bex dyed me some yarn - 'Emily the Car' colourway, which is funny if you realise that Kris thought I was car the first time Bex mentioned me.

Sally and Lara gave me 1200m of this lovely two-ply/laceweight from Rubi and Lana

Sandra, whose partner Mary-Helen was in NZ so not at my birthday Indian feast, introduced me to the ABC shop with a card for there - another place I keep on browsing now!

What a lucky jammer I am!

Poop. I completely forgot. And I have another friend with birthday the same day and I remember her, albeit late. So sorry. Looks like it was lovely on the yarn haul front anyway.

Glad you hoovered up the stress-inducing dust bunnies, even though I'm with you on the "don't look under the bed" strategy.

Yep, it was a good night, wasn't it? Must be repeated at the next birthday - Clare?
