  Lucky me
In the last week, I have received two generous gifts from knitfiends... little did either of them know, it was my birthday Sunday. Ha! Great timing, no?

After seeing
this shawl, i was blubbering to kris about that great yarn (laceweight crimson tweed?!). What did she do? She sent me her leftovers! This week a package arrived fresh from Norway, and that color definitely perked me right out of my Monday funk.

Spinni Tweed

That's Isager Spinni Tweed laceweight wool - 100g skeins with 600 yds a piece. And as easily as that, the lace bug has been resurrected. I'm on the hunt for a good project for this stuff now. Thank you, Kris!

And last week,
Lisa sent over the pattern for 'Scott' (Rowan Classic Winter) from Portland. It was just the motivation I needed to go ahead and make the purchase I had been planning for my very own birthday gift (to myself). I am now stocked with a healthy supply of Soft Tweed and looking forward to digging in sometime in the early fall (probably late summer, who am I kidding).

RYC Soft Tweed

I've been wanting to make this sweater for a looong time, so I'm happy to say that its finally a reality. And, by the way, have you felt Soft Tweed? hehehehehehhhahhah, glorious! its cackle-worthy.

Thanks, you two!

Hey, happy belated birthday!
And those yarns will be really great for that pattern. Late summer? Mmmmm, early August, knowing you.

Scott is going to be incredible. I'm tempted to walk over to the LYS across the street just to feel that yarn now.

The *picture* of the Soft Tweed looks good enough to chew on!

Happy belated birthday!

Happy belated birthday! Those lace yarn are so gorgeous. Can't wait to see when you cast on your shawl.

Oh, that red is beautiful!

Wow, that is either some beautiful yarn or beautiful photography. Probably both.

Whoah, that red is gorgeous.

It was my birthday on Sunday, too! Happy birthday!

july 9th birthdays are really going around - it was mine too, and my twin sister's by extension. happy belated!

That soft tweed looks so great! And the pattern?...my husband's name is Scott! I think it's a match! Project #101 on the list!

So you are a cancerian too? Not that it is very important, but I love to know more fellow cancerians! :) Happy Birthday.
That red is a killer ... my hand started moving toward the screen trying to touch the lace! Enjoy!

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! what great gifts! i love that lace shawl that kris made. it's one of my favorites.

Happy Birthday!! And pardon me while I whipe away my drool after seeing that Soft Tweed. That is going to be one gorgeous sweater!
