Birthday exchange!

Purl Jam does this awesome birthday exchange thing.  We get assigned to knit for someone’s birthday, like a Secret Santa exchange.  Usually we have a theme like hats, cowls, mitts, etc., but this year the knitter/giver gets to choose.  Well, yesterday was my actual birthday, and tonight was Knit Night, so I was on the receiving end, yay!

Here’s how it went:

yay!

yay!

I don’t know what caused this goofy expression, but it was too precious not to include.

What IS this face???

And there were some little goodies, too, including fabric from a town about 20 minutes from my home town in Wisconsin.

You'll see the reason for THIS face in the next photo.

I love how simple and sturdy this bag is.  I can’t wait to use it!
