Happy Birthday to Me...

Hello everyone.  And hello to all my new followers!  Lovely to see you.

It is my birthday today.  Clickety click is a clue...

My daughter asked me what I was doing on this special day and I told her - knitting a beret.  I know, not very birthday-ish, but it is a different beret.  Not a Gretel this time, but the Rustling Leaves beret from Coastal Knits.  Guess it won't be the last one...

Rustling Leaves 1

This is how far I've got at the moment, so I'm not sure it'll be finished today. I have made one concession to birthday-ness and am going out to dinner.  Tomorrow I'm planning to go to a big brocante in Lussac-les-Chateaux and on Monday I'm going into Limoges with Debra, my friend and hairdresser.

I don't know how I cope with all this excitement (at my age...)!
