Happy birthday to me

I’m back from the great California adventure, have unpacked and am trying to remember what it was that I was doing before I left – which I am sure was very very important – and now it’s my birthday. Today I’m going to celebrate by going for a run, finishing making some chocolate cupcakes of death, and going in to knit at the Purple Purl for a bit. After that, who knows. If things get really crazy, maybe I’ll get out my spinning wheel this weekend. (STEP back.)


As for my knitting, I’m working away on a Royale pullover of my own, since the lovely sample I made up back in the spring is now in the hands of Tanis Fiber Arts! And I must have one of my own. This is Tanis’ aran weight, in ‘teal’, which was one of her new colours this May. It is delicious.

Now I have some birthday-ing to do. Happy Friday!


  1. Have a great birthday!

  12. Happy Birthday Glenna..I don’t suppose you could share the cupcake recipe? I need something to send to work with my firefighter hubby and a cake is too messy for them it seems..

    I have been spinning on a drop spindle..its fun and I am enjoying it a lot…not sure if I want a wheel or not but I am guessing that is the progression?
