My Birthday!!!!

Tomorrow is my Birthday!!!! To celebrate my Mom and I are going to Michigan to The Four Winds Casino!!!! I am hoping I can win enough to get a drum carder or nice loom, but I am not expecting it. I started some socks on size 1 circ's to take with me to work on in the car. I am using some yarn that my friend Mary gave me. I will post a picture of the socks on Wednesday. I am doing 2 at a time!!! The socks will be put away for Christmas gifts. I am also going to take some tatting with me. I did tat some 4 leaf clovers that I made into pins for us to wear for luck. I will post a picture of my 4 leaf clover later today or Wednesday.


  1. Oh you were born on St. Patrick's Day! That's awesome! Happy Birthday a day early! I hope you have the luck of the Irish with you at the casino. :) I can't wait to see your clover pin.
    My b-day was the 11th. I got an amazon card that I may be using to order circular needles.

    You mention knitting 2 at a time socks. I have that book. I've had it forever but never tried it but I really want to.
    I've never even knit socks on circs I always use dpns. I cast on for socks on two circulars this morning but I don't have the longer circs needed to do the two at a time yet. I went to my LYS yesterday to get 2 40's but they didn't have any and I only want addi so I left with just yarn for a hat. I'm going to have to order them or wait until my LYS gets more stock in. In the meantime, I'm just going to try to learn to knit 1 sock at a time on circs! haha
    I'll check later to see if you posted a picture of your clover pin.

    Again, Happy Birthday!


  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! That's so cool having your birthday on St. Patricks Day :) Good luck at the casino, I'll keep my fingers crossed you win enough for a drum carder or your loom. By the way, your blog is looking great!
