Time flies...

...when you are having fun. And in the blink of an eye, bam, you are a year older. Thanks to all of my family and friends who sent birthday greetings and gifts. My SP9 sent a very special package with lots of goodies. Look at this lovely Schaeffer Anne:

My SP9 knows that I love the browns and pinks! I already sent you an email, SP9, but thank you again for thinking of me and sending such a nice birthday package!

Since I last posted, I knit a hat out of handspun merino/silk, and a scarf out of handspun biffle. They are not meant to match.

Each of these will be a holiday gift for someone special. The hat came out rather large, and I asked the recipient to do some special exercises to increase his brainage, but since that may not be feasible, I ripped the hat and re-cast on for something of normal size.

Oh, Jen! HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you!!!

Your new Anne is beautiful. Fondle it in good health.

I would have liked to see what kind of exercises the hat recipient did, if they were able to increase their head size.

Beautiful!!!:-) Too bad the hat had to be frogged. I can't understand why he couldn't increase his head circumference to fit the hat. It's merino/silk for goodness sakes!

OH, Jen, that cracked me up 'special exercises to increase his brainage'!

Though I wonder, maybe he just wasn't trying hard enough with the exercises? did you ask for proof?
