Much too young to be this old!

Great birthday yesterday.  Lance brought me a cake, took me to On the Border for late lunch and gave me a pair of mocha Birkenstocks.  I had no idea he had gotten them.  I did not think he knew my size.  He is so very thoughtful.  I am greatful to have him in my life.  The sun came out as we were leaving On the Border so we were able to eat cake on the deck.   It was a beautiful, perfect afternoon.

About the age thing.  I do not feel 73 years old.  Those numbers should be reversed.  The birthday picture Lance took (which I will never post) does look like a 73 year old woman, but nothing else about my life makes me feel 73.  Guess you really can’t judge a book by the cover. 

The first purple and teal green sock is finished and fits perfectly.  The second sock is in progress.  True to form I started another project before finishing the second sock.   I am knitting the Februaly Lady sweater using some beautiful purple yarn from the stash. The yarn is Pingouin Confort, 50/40/10, wool/acrylic/mohair and was purchased at a bin sale at Weaving Works in Seattle many years ago.  

I am trying not to start yet another project but I have the perfect yarn to knit socks to wear with the mocha birkenstocks.   It is Cherry Tree Hill supersock 100% superwash merino in the Java color way.  I am going to try to wait for Wendy’s new sock book to find a pattern to use for these socks but I am not sure I can wait until April 14th.  I could just start knitting the toes and wait for the book to decide on a pattern. 

So much yarn, pleanty of time, so much fun.   Life is good.
