First off, thanks for all the birthday wishes! I had a really nice day, even though it was SO. HOT. What’s better than a frosty beer? I went on the Steam Whistle Brewery tour, which was fun (and I got a bottle opener too). There’s lots of opportunities for sampling – go in and get a sample, go sit and listen to the guy talk, refill, go see the actual machinery and stuff, get another refill…
Afterwards we went to Kissan for Indian food. Yum! I’ll definitely go again – too bad it’s so far away from me.
If you read the comments last time, you would’ve seen megan’s promise of a BIG present – wanna see? Of course you do!
It’s an Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom! All finished and put together, too – I can’t wait to put it to use. Denny’s going to come teach me to weave and I’ll…fix her email. Heh.
Something else big and made of wood I got for the b-day:
My talented boyfriend made me a skein winder at my request. It’ll be so much faster than a niddy-noddy, and more accurate for measuring than the swift he made me last year. Yay!
Hopefully I’ll be back with some actual knitting content real soon. Stay cool!
