My birthday is coming up in about a week and a half. I'll be 33. Since I saw my mom this weekend she went ahead and brought my birthday present. It might be the most exciting present I've gotten in a while. Allow me to share.....
First up, HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS!!!! I love this game. LOVE it. I never had it as a kid so any time I went to a friend's house that had the game, I'd just want to play. And play and play and play. Of course, they owned it. They didn't care to play anymore. But me, I just couldn't get enough. So now I can force my own children to play and kick their little patooties! Just kidding. There isn't really any skill involved so I can't much control the game. But I can force them to play with me! Woohoo! Hungry Hungry Hippo fun!
Next out of the bag, a black wallet/clutch thing that I've been wanting for a while. I find I like any and all girl/accessory/cute things even if I don't need it or will never use it. Prime example: Stationery and journals. I love looking at them at the store. I would love to receive those things as a gift. But I don't write. They'd be completely useless to me. But I love such things so!
Can you tell what these are?? Didn't think so. They're crochet hooks. Wooden crochet hooks. In a wide variety of sizes. I've knit with bamboo needles, but I haven't used a wooden hook yet. I'm interested to try it. Plus, I just needed more sizes of hook for some projects I've been mulling over.
Ok, here it is. The most Most MOST exciting part:
That is three balls of Rowan Kidsilk Haze. Let me be more clear:
Can you read that label??? Yeah, it's mohair and silk yarn!!! I've opened the baggie once to touch it. It's so soft. I'm a little scared to try to knit something out of it. Don't worry. I'm going to be brave. I will use this yarn. It just might take me a little time to work up the courage.
Thanks Mom!! I love my presents!!
