On Birthdays.

So, today is my birthday. I guess I don't really have much else to say about that. I had a nice day and I was spoiled with really nice gifts.

When I last left you, I had flung myself across the country for my day job. I made it back last weekend in one piece (though one iPod short after leaving it in the seatpocket of the seat in front of me*) and then put in a crazy week at work. Rykert and I headed to Des Moines Saturday morning where we met my parents and sister at the Downtown Farmer's Market. We spent the rest of the weekend at my parent's.

I'm trucking along on my Ariann, despite the 90 degree temperatures and the wool factor. Upon returning to Iowa last weekend, the body (up to the armpits) was completed. The first sleeve has now been knitted 1.5 times (yes it was half way finished when I noticed a glaring error that I couldn't live with. Here's the progress so far...

And here's what 14 weeks looks like...

I'm taking the day off tomorrow. I don't really have any plans except to get caught up around here and relax. And maybe make some pepper jelly. I'll be back soon with either baby hats or a finished Ariann.

*Rykert seized the opportunity on the misplaced iPod and replaced it for my birthday. I'm now the proud owner of a brand new iPod, and I will not have to go through another week at work without it.
