Knitbloggers, thanks for all the birthday wishes! I have had a very pleasant day, relaxing and actually getting some knitting done before 8 p.m. As a present to myself I bought some very expensive blue mules. A woman can never have enough shoes! I am about halfway through the front of the frilly sweater. I never made it to open knitting last night. I was doing errands beforehand and time just got away from me. I'll try to go again next week.
