"O-tanjobi Omedeto Gozaimasu"

It's been a year since I started blogging. I didn't think I'd make it, but here I am and to celebrate a little I got something from Kiyoko yesterday at our Sunday knit thing:


A skein of "Szack R" laceweight wool from Japan in a delightful coral red heathered colourway. I am still thinking about what to make with the 1,300 m of it. Yet another great buy from AmiAmi, where good things come from.

Hence also the whole Japanese theme...at least I hope the title says "Happy Birthday". It could be awfully embarrassing if it said something like "go to hell" or worse, though I am pretty sure certain people - Miss D., for example - would enjoy other people's embarrassment - mine, that is - very much.

How about you check out the Montreal knits blog for some more japanese knits? VĂ©ronik's latest post shows great examples from Toshiyuki Shimada's book "New Style of heirloom knitting". Honestly, I got the book, and some of that stuff makes me wanna drool...
