Happy Birthday to me!

Yup - another year, another birthday. I enjoy my birthday and the numbers going up have not started to phase me yet (let's see how I feel in another 10 years!) today I am 29. This past year I've had my ups (new website and buisness) and downs (ending of a relationship) but no matter what happened I am always looking forward to what comes next. I'm sending out a big thank you to all my friends and family who have helped me out, supported and encouraged me to always move forward, learn from my mistakes and those of others, and just be happy, hopeful me!

Here is an interesting fact: my little sister, who works with me and who you've probably seen a few times on this here blog, it is her birthday too! When I was 7 I ran into school yelling - guess what I got for my birthday? a BABY sister! And my other sister was born on my half birthday July 25th...pretty cool huh?

I don't have any new knitting pictures but I do have a birthday request - I have started a customer gallery and REALLY want to get lots of pictures up there to share with everyone. So if you have knit something or spun something with anything from Brooklyn Handspun I would LOVE to get a picture, a little description and what info you'd like me to add like name / blog/ etc...

If you send them over to me I'll send you a 10% off coupon for the store How does that sound?

Here are a few pictures I've gotten already from the lovely Regina - The Frist one is using 1 skein of soft spun in Breeze (she had 5 yards left over! - she likes to live on the edge!).

This one is Signature in Smarties colorway-

Aren't they great?! I love seeing how creative you guys are it really inspires me!

I'll leave you with a picture I took with my Fab new camera of the Verrazano Bridge - this is only a few blocks from my house.
