my daughter received an mp3 player
for her birthday...
i made her this little
mp3 goldfish-y type holder
to carry it in her backpack in...

thanks to everyone who wished me
a happy birthday...
it was very sweet.
part of the birthday spoils included
this book

which i have been coveting
for a long long time now...
there are some great step by steps
and some oh-so-pretty patterns...
i can't wait to dive in!

i also joined a Knit-a-long!
my first one!
it is a dishcloth one,
and starts on september 15...
i'm chomping at the bit
to get started
(heh. guess what everyone is getting
for christmas this year?)
