spoiled, that's me

I had a great birthday. We all went out to dinner at our favorite new neighborhood joint. I should have taken a picture. Darn.

My Grandma sent me a gift certificate to Knit Picks. I ordered a ball winder. This is the very first thing I wound.

The colors are washed out, but I just love the way they look. This is Silkie from the April Rockin' Sock Club kit. They will be my next, not designed by me, project. I am still waiting for the yarn for my next, designed by me project.

The biggest surprise for my birthday was this

It is a Dale Of Norway Olympic Sweater! I never in my life expected to own such a thing. The placket has a beautiful charm and is lined in velvet.

The sleeves also have a button closure and velvet lining.

Talk about spoiled! I am feeling it right now. Husband is a peach!

Wow, your sweater is gorgeous. Love the embroidery! The Salt Lake Olympic sweater had silly little people on it and stars strategically placed right over the, er, bust; I didn't even want one. But yours is to die for!
