Katy_birthday_006 My birthday extravagaza started yesterday with a fabulous party with family and friends.  Kevin very kindly cooked scrumptuous crabcakes and risotto for mKaty_birthday_009y mom, Granny, Marilyn (a friend/customer from the shop), Ricki, Ann and Nancy.  Rinaldo and the boys came too.  Happy Birthday Avery!  Nancy also brought my  favorite carrot cake–Lloyds!  There was even a phone call from Paris wishing a Bonne Anniversaire.

It was a relaxing afternoon of knitting, chatting and eating.  The kids got along well–young and old.  And when you invite knitters over for birthday celebrations–you get knitterly related gifts.  Knitterly_birthday_2 There was a hysterical gag gift from Granny as well.  She is a nut and never dull.  Gifts included Cherry Tree Hill Merino Lace, notecards, a purse that will look divine in Paris, a signed Margaret Stove book, Shetland Wool from the Tomato Factory, a knitting figurine, hand painted alpaca, an emergency sock kit, candle, one Loskins sock, Seacoast Superwash sock wool, a handmade card, wine and an adorable birthday cake tape measure.

Tomorrow I turn 37 and I feel very blessed and fortunate to have a loving family, wonderful friends and much laughter.
