Happy birthday... to all of us!

Today, my dear but somewhat invisible friends, is my birthday. Usually it is customary for the birthday person to receive the gifts, but since I am a benevolant and kind maintainer of the blogosphere, I have decided to share the gifty love around with a pressie bonanza!

All you have to do is be the first to email me, detailing which of the below gifts you would like to receive, then hang around your mailbox, salivating anxiously until it arrives. Pretty simple, huh? So, to the showcase we go!

Gift 1: Unusual Toys for you to Knit and Enjoy by Jess Hutchison.
Fabulous little booklet, this one. I got so excited when it came out that I ordered two copies, but never found anybody worthy enough to give the spare to, so hit the send button and it's yours!

Updated: This has gone!

Gift 2: Rowan's Big Easy
Been there, done that. Have you? Give it a try!

Updated: This has gone!

Gift 3: Rebecca Magazine No 23 - Summer.
Lots of cool patterns from the talented folk at Rebecca. See more here. And it's now sold out, so it's officially a rarity. Ooooh!

Updated: This has gone!

Gift 4: Rebecca Magazine No 24 - Winter.
Oh, so you prefer the winter knitting, eh. I hear, you buddy. Click, click away! (also sold out, so hurry up!)

Updated: This has gone!

Gift 5: Rebecca Magazine No 19 - Winter.
How old is this one? Just as well the designs are timeless! Dude, it's like, totally, vintage AND sold out! Quick, grab it before it crumbles into dust and overexcited archeologists start hovering over it.

Updated: This has gone!

Gift 6: Rebecca Magazine No 25 - Summer
More gorgeous summery patterns for all you summery knitters out there.

Updated: This has gone!

Ummm, that's about it. Now, only one pressie per person. Thems the rules. Good luck - if you don't hear from me for a bit, it's because I'll be in the city enjoying my Yum Cha birthday feast!

    For she's a jolly good knitter, for she's a jolly good knitter, for she's a jolly good kniiiiitter...which nobody can deny!

    Only someone as generous and thoughtful as you would be giving away pressies on your birthday. You are one of a kind :-)

  16. What an amazing and generous woman you are.

    Happy birthday my friend.
