June is my birthday month, and it was great for my knitting.
My mother's gift was stroke of genius. She is not a knitter (a crazy quilting lady, sure, but not a knitter). So she consulted a friend who is a knitter, asking what a great gift would be, and followed the advice.
The gift turned out to be a fabulous set of interchangeable circular needles made of bamboo and super-flexible, super-fine cables. She also got me a second set of cables. It all stores in this great, compact fabric case. I can't wait to travel.
Jordynn got me a great gift too. First, four skeins of Cascade 220 Tweeds in a great brownish-taupe color, one of my favorite shades. Maybe I'll use it for Forecast. She also got me a subscription to Interweave Knits. This is a great gift, because it's something I would never get for myself--it's the perfect luxury.
But I find that the best gifts can be the ones you give yourself. After all, no one knows what you want more than you do. So I did some stash enhancement at the store closing sale of a local yarn shop--everything was a straight 50% off. Bam.
