Happy Birthday to me!

Saturday was my birthday, and Liz and Mike sent me this fabulous knitting card:

The sheep is purple, although is it a bit hard to tell due to my lack of skills with photography.

I had a lovely day, and got some wonderful pressies. My other half gave me The Pleasures of Knitting: Timeless Feminine Sweaters and my inlaws also gave me At Knit's End by the yarn harlot. I have dipped into both but haven't had a proper read yet, I think a nice cup of tea and a couple of the chocolates from my aunt and uncle and a nice read are what is called for this afternoon :-)

I finished knitting my sample of lambswool to be felted, this is what it looked like before it went through the wash:

And this is how it looks after it has been through the wash twice:

This seems to be a good density for a bag, so I shall work out how many stitches I need and cast on today I think.
