happy day for Catherine


On Saturday we attended a surprise "Not Yet 50" party for my sister-in-law. And just look at the clever cake my brother commissioned for the celebration! The knitting needles weren't edible, but the rest was. The yarn balls were molded from Rice Krispie squares then wrapped in icing. The knitted fabric was pure icing draped down the front of the cake. How cute is that, eh? Seemed like a shame to cut it and eat it.

Catherine seemed very happy with her presents, too. From us she unwrapped a skein of Bugga from Sanguine Gryphon in her Lord of the Flies colourway - exactly Catherine's colours. Mmmm, cashmere. She's a sock knitter, so she's probably got plenty of patterns in her queue to pick from. And from my sister she got Haiku Knits. Some very interesting patterns there. Lucky girl!
