Happy Birthday Mandy!

Hee hee - I made another cake for my friend Mandy. Hers was "special" because it was gluten free! She loved it. Yummmmie. Look at these! How cute! My friend Joan gave these to me. They remind me of pogs. You can use these to attach to gift bags or put inside boxes before you give out your knitted gifts! Thanks Joan!
My friend Kitty is just learning to knit. Let's all add another one to the mix! I love it when new knitters are just starting out. It makes me remember how excited (and obsessed) I was to just knit every minute of every day. She will be joining my Wednesday stitch n bitch that I have at work. It's always fun to have a new member.

Last night I casted on the stitches needed to start my very first sweater. I'm thinking it's going to take me a while to decipher the pattern and such so don't look for any pictures or updates just yet. I'll get back with ya!

All my friends have been at a loss for how to cook for me ... and certainly no one has undertaken the bold and daring task of BAKING for me! :-) This was the best birthday cake EVER! I love it, thanks Nan!
