Yesterday was my birthday. I did a little of this, had my free birthday lunch here, did some shopping here, and spent the evening spinning with my homies.
I took a photo of a couple of lovely items from Skip...
Unbeknownst to me, I needed to get a different SIM card for it as many of the new cell phones use a micro SIM card now. I couldn't just swap the one from my old Nokia phone (which also fit into the iPhone 3G). My cellular service provider swapped me for the new one - no charge, thank goodness - I'm sure glad they're open on Sundays. It took a bit of fiddling to get all the features/and Apps that I wanted fully operational and synched with my iTunes (which needed to be upgraded first) but now it's working perfectly. Yay!
The Apple logo shows through the back of the Otter Box case. I have learned that the logo can serve as a mini mirror, too! ... very handy for applying lipgloss or checking one's teeth for food debris. :-)
I also did a little knitting on my birthday and got more than halfway done on this sweater I'm knitting for a one year birthday party for a grand-nephew. It's Ewan, a free pattern on Ravelry using Butterfly cotton DK yarn from my stash. It is knit sideways. (the yarn is more of a light tan than the photo shows)
Skip and Scooter will represent our branch of the family at the birthday party but I won't be going as I'll be attending the DKC Knitter's Frolic!! Wheeeee!!! The Frolic is like Christmas morning for knitters in the greater Toronto area. On Saturday, my knitterly friend, Jennifer and I will be roaring into Toronto to gain free and early admission because we're volunteering to wind yarn for an hour.
Then on Sunday, I will return to the site for a 3 hour workshop with Franklin Habit on "Photographing Your Fibre". I'm pretty geeked up about it as I definitely need any help I can get with my photography skills and also because Franklin is such a personality amongst 'kniterati'. I hope to take lots of photos and plaster my blog with them early next week.
All in all, my birthday was a very fine day, indeed.
