Its a Birthday

No biggie, My Birthday is Monday. My friend Lili Pintea-Reed sent me some lovely Llama yarn. I'm plying it with some superfine Merino. Its very soft but its falling apart. I can see this in a lovely lace scarf.
Projects (other then the Llama) is a blanket made up of Grannie Squares from some yarn Liza Della Valentina dyed as a b-day gift a couple years ago. Been waiting for just the right Project. I've also made 2 hats from Noro Silk garden in a Lily Chin pattern. I've made several of these hats and only have 1 hidden away for myself.
Thinking of making the lace socks.. which I've only done the leg on so far..into fingerless gloves. What do you think? I'm still thinking about it.
Just contacted the designer of "Here there be Dragons" Shawl pattern. I've been in love with this for awhile. Its about time I ordered it.

Just finished a book called "The Doomsday Book" by Connie Willis. Deb of Village yarn and Tea insisted I read it. I must say.....I read it in 11 hours. I could NOT put it down. Now I have a headache and need to decompress for a couple

Happy birthday!!!! That pattern is killer - I might have to buy it once I have an income again. :) I like her snowflake one, too.
