I bought some of my presents myself this year, although Chris gave me the money for them afterwards, and wrapped them for me.
I've decided that I want to learn to knit socks, so my main gifts were some circular knitting needles, some DPNs, and some stitch markers. (I also got a hot water bottle and handwarmer (another!), and some chocolates and biscuits which I didn't photograph. And some birthday money too, which will probably be spent on yarny-related things).
I was really impressed with my stitch markers from CharmedKnitting
They were beautifully wrapped, and when I opened them they were enclosed in a cute little card
I'd ordered some little black cat stitch markers, which were in a lovely little black mesh bag, but they'd also included some extra ones as a free gift.
My mum came over for a couple of hours this morning, and this afternoon Chris, Junior and I went for a walk in the park.
Another lovely birthday!
