One small step for Byrne, one giant mess for Royal Mail

Hey look, my post from the last two weeks...

To my absolute astonishment it actually was at the delivery office when we went to collect it this morning. Then when I got back the postman handed me three more red cards for things they "couldn't deliver". Unbelievable. Actually, bearing in mind that this is royal mail, believable.

On the plus side I basically got a second birthday since I finally got cards and presents! I got some awesome stuff. The big thing was an amazing edwardian glass necklace from my Mum, which can be seen here on top of the cupcake book from my sister.

Sister Sian also got me some lovely Noro sock yarn to try out. I know I always hate noro because of the knots but I thought I'd give it another go.

As well as the birthday presents I got parcels from a few swaps I've been doing. Blue stitchmarkers. These are amazing.

Red stitchmarkers.

Also some books from Bookmooch (see left sidebar). Two japanese knit books and crochet hats.

I can't believe more people haven't joined Boookmooch. I got all these for FREE! Just posted some of my used books off to others who wanted them. Genius.

There were also a few things I got myself as birthday presents. I've been wanting this for quite a while...

Am going to take it on holiday with me next week. Pooch and I are off to St Ives for 5 nights. While away I'll be working on my cable socks for the Ravelry Interweave Group July KAL. I've dyed up this yarn especially since I thought they really needed pink.

My final self-present was 600g of Kauni. All 4 balls are the rainbow colourway. So lurvellllyyyy.

Very finally, I've found a hexagon I like so am thinking of another afghan. Here's the pattern. This is my first attempt.

Hooray for post! Happy belated birthday - I'm sure you'll love the Debbie New book. It blew me away when I first read it (I bought it for myself for Christmas a couple of years ago!)

Have a great time in St Ives :)

Hugs, Heather xx

I'm just knitting with Noro sock yarn - it looks great but I'm not really enamoured either by the feel of it or the fact that it's really overspun and twists up all the time. Good luck!
