a knitter's stash is no laughing matter

Sorry fellow TWD bakers. The only dimples you'll find here are on my forty year old. . .never mind. :) Today is my 4oth birthday and I wasn't allowed to do any baking. My daughter has made my cake and I think it is going to be grand indeed. I can't wait to see it! But first, dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe! Excellent atmosphere and Justin, my newly turned 21 year old gave me a high-five and said, "YES! Drinks!" That's where we celebrated his birthday a few weeks ago. We had so much fun I wanted to go back for more. The celebrating has begun.

But first, a little chastising. There can be no laughing at a yarn stash. You know who you are. And you'd better be getting on the phone to wish your little sister a happy birthday! Mom, I got your card so you're off the hook.

I know I said I wasn't going to accumulate a yarn stash but I can't help it! A girl can only knit so fast and, and, and. . .I doubt seriously I even need to justify my stash to YOU, mom. Let's see the photographic evidence of YOUR stash, shall we? And then we'll talk. Um, kettle? Black? Apple? Tree? :) That's us, alright. You know I love you.

Ok, I'm done with that. How about some show and tell? This is that lovely little ball of TY-DY yarn turning into a sock. Cute, no?

Happy Birthday! Too funny about your yarn stash - I used to have one years ago myself but since I am no longer stay at home, I don't have the time to do everything I wish I could!

I remember 40. It was a v-e-r-y long time ago :) but as I seem to recall, it was a great year. Hope yours is too!

Happy Birthday. Hope you had a good day. According to everything I've heard, sock yarns don't count as stash! g

We already talked about BD - we've kind of been celebrating it a little at a time... I know you had a good time too. A number is just a number, it's how you live everyday that counts.
bunches of hugs, Rob
