It’s my birthday, and I’ll knit if I want to!

Yep, I’m 26. How did that happen? My dad, forty years my senior, said this today “I don’t know how the time passed so quick, or where all those years went. Although I suppose when you’re one, and turn two, that’s 100% of an increase in your age, but when you’re sixty-six and a year passes, it’s a much smaller proportion of your whole life.” He’s a smart man, and I love him very much. 

I don’t usually bother celebrating my birthday, or making any kind of a big deal of it. It seems like more effort than is necessary for little ole me, and I get embarrassed by the social pressure involved in hosting a birthday party. But this year’s is being awesome, as my mum gave me a knit-and-felt-your-own-beads kit, from which I intend to use the yarn only, and my housemates gave me a set of Symfonie interchangeable tips and cables: http://www.knitpro.eu/Materialwise-size-Details.asp?id=5 

Needless to say, I can’t wait to play with the new pretties, but I had better make that hat first. I am going to look awesome in it. Honest. If only my RSI wasn’t acting up – I don’t really want to knit with my forearm going twang every time I pick up the needles.
