Happy Birthday to Me!

I had a wonderful birthday today! My wonderful classmates threw me a surprise birthday party. It was really sweet of them considering we all just met less than one month ago. Anyway, we had a blast talking research (yeah, we're nerds) and movies. :)

I opened up my birthday presents too. Here is a picture of the loot. My parents sent me a glass Dopey figurine (I collect them) and I bought myself a few knitting magazines (okay, I would have bought them anyhow, but at least I had an excuse with the birthday and all), a few necessary movies (musicals are a staple in my DVD collection), Opal yarn (flamingo, fish, and a petticoat colorway), Paton, and a cooking magazine (I will learn to cook if it kills me).

I promise to return to knitting content soon! I am thinking the beautiful Opal yarn will motivate me.

Alright, back to birthday fun!


Knitted Television:
Monty Python's Flying Circus (I am not sure which episode, but there was a cartoon woman knitting who was later placed into a suitcase and taken elsewhere. This description makes sense if you have ever seen a Monty Python show).


  1. Hey, happy birthday!

  2. Happy belated birthday! Great gifts, and love that yarn!

  3. That flamingo is so perfect for Florida. Happy (belated) birthday!

  4. Hurrah!!! Happy birthday! Flamingo socks rock! =)
