Happy Birthday to My Second Baby!

Though he would say, "I'm not a baby I'm a BIG MAN!"

He got a Plug and Play Winnie the Pooh game, a new Spongebob shirt, and dvd about Bigfoot (monster truck), a new Shake and Go racer, and the Spongebob Krusty Krab Lego set. Of course there was more cake decorating and the eating of said decorations while the actual decorating took place. (Oh, yes, and he also got snow for his birthday today. By the sounds of the forecast we're going to get snow, freezing rain, rain, ice pellets, etc, at varying times over the next three days. I guess winter has finally hit. It seems to have stopped snowing at the moment.)

There's even a little Plankton!

My parents gave them each $50 for their birthdays, so they picked this Lego set out. I have to order it for them.

I finished the bag for the Knit Mitt Kit Swap. It's the ever-famous buttonhole bag from these guys. I made it a little more "bulbous" on the sides by decreasing an extra round at the top before the handle. It's made with Briggs & Little Atlantic in violet. It's still wet in this picture. I mostly defuzzed it, but I'll go over it again when it's dry. I'll have to sit it in front of the fan all night so it will be dry when I package it up to mail on Tuesday. This bag was started yesterday and finished today.

I also made this child hat and mittens set on January 12 for a little guy's birthday yesterday. It's made with Patons Shetland Chunky in deep red.

It was really busy at work yesterday. The yarn department did very well. We're trying to do inventory, but when the other lady there and I aren't there at the same time it's rather hard. I didn't get much counted. (The whole store is done except for the yarn.) One good thing is we find all the odd dye lot balls or just one of a certain color left, and it gets thrown in the mark-down bin. I bought a ball of Patons Shetland Chunky Tweeds in earthy brown for a plain hat for me since it was the last ball left, and I like that yarn a lot (obviously!). {Nova Knitter -- there's an order coming in within the next two weeks of new Classic Wool colors and more Briggs & Little colors. Also, we're supposedly placing an order this week for some self-striping Fortissima Socka yarn.}

Well, off to do some dishes.

Happy knitting!

I'm impressed with the Krusty Crab! Looks like a Happy Birthday for sure.
The Button Bag is wonderful - I like your shaping - that B&L does felt well.

I bet you're glad to get the birthdays out of the way. My 2 are both in February and I find that to soon after Christmas.
Thanks for the heads up about the Classic Wool. I will be in to get some for sure!
