Birthday Bash


IMG_1885, originally uploaded by Courtney Knits.

I had a wonderful birthday weekend. My friend Danielle and I drove to Ashland to see Othello. She was my personal hero and drove the entire way allowing me to do what I wanted to do most, knit!
We stopped off in Eugene on our way down and went bird watching. We saw a rare Wood Sandpiper (not usually on this continent)!
We also went to a lovely little knit shop in Eugene and Danielle bought her first sock yarn! whoo hoo, a convert!
I spent some of my birthday money on the big, green leather bag pictured, some earrings made by a local artist in Ashland and a HOT pink leather case for my NEW business cards. This is the first time I have ever had my own cards so I thought they should travel in style.
As you can see the Bird in Hand mittens are almost done and I have started a new Monkey sock in STR 'Rare gems' with picot cuffs, inspired by Neuroknitter.
My Picovoli is also finished and blocking so more photos to come.
