It's all about the B-day, baby!

Yup today was my B-day. For my day I wanted to visit Kathy's Kreations in Ligonier, PA. I took this pix while driving by so it isn't the best pix but it's my day 26 pix. That LYS is awesome. It's huge and the women are wonderful. I'm already plotting showing up for a knitting night sometime, it's really not that far only about a 30 min drive and it's a lot bigger than my local LYS so maybe more people my age would be there. The whole area is so cute, we're totally planning on going back in the summer to walk around the town and visit the store again. (plus when Jess visits I'm so taking her there!)
Stupid me forgot the camera when we went into the store so I don't have too many photos. We had to park a couple of blocks away, and for fear of my DH pushing me in the car and driving away like a mad man
, I didn't go back and get it. LOL I think if you ask him it wasn't that bad. The girls gave him a run for his money. Luckily they had some coloring books and puzzles for them to play with while I walked around petting the yarn.
I finally walked away with a watermelon tape measure, 3 skeins of Tatamy Tweed, and 2 addi
turbo needles size 1.(my b-day present to myself) I bought two b/c over at Ravelry my Christian Knitters group is doing a Secret Prayer Sock Swap. Where we get a partner and they give us something they would like prayer about. While we're knitting their socks we're praying for them, kinda like a prayer shawl/sockapaloza smoosh. And when we send our gift package we reveal who we are. So much fun! Anyways I'm going to do the 2 socks on 2 circs b/c I have MAJO
R second sock syndrome. Hopefully that will remedy it's self! I'm so excited about this swap. I can't wait to get started.
NOTE:I am not allowing myself to start until my Christmas things are done. Yes I'm still working on them! (only 3 more to finish)
For my b-day gifts from my DH and the girls I got two things I've
been wanting. The girls got me, The Bourne Ultimatum. To complete my set of those movies. It's really good if you haven't seen it. (all 3 of them are). From my DH I got the Local Breads book I've been wanting for oh so long. I think it's partly b/c he wants home baked bread and b/c I sent him my amazon wish list! LOL I just started reading it and I'm totally in love!
Well I've got to go and get reading, knitting, crocheting and everything else I need to do. Have a great night!

So glad you had a great birthday! It's been rumored there's a LYS around here, but I haven't found it yet. Happy birthday!

What better for a picture than LYS...but how did you manage to drive by? My car would have stopped on it's own and forced me to go in...that's my story and I'm sticking to it. :P
