I think it's wishing me a clean birthday, LOL.
The envelope was great, too:
This is where I am keeping track of my knitting projects. I've been knitting since I was 8 and am always learning new tricks. There are a few free patterns included, but you'll have to look to find them!
This is the indiecita alpaca held two strands together. I tried first using one strand but it was only little tiny stitches and just didn't look like I had imagined. I then tried 2 strands on size 5 straight needles but that looked a little tight so this is using my nylon size 6 circ. I tried using my Denise but the point isn't too pointy so it was harder to to the sl1-k2tog-psso maneuver. Normally I like their shape and feel much better but for this project they were causing a little frustration.
This picture was taken in very low light and I didn't ask the DH to fix it.
I'm using the lacy zigzag (Nov 1 from the perpetual calendar) and size 10.5 or 11 needles. My rectangles will each be 10" x 30". Here's a progress picture. It's actually going very fast but it's hard to take a picture of it since the batteries are about gone on the camera and it's very dark.
