It's birthday eve! I figured I should get this post up sooner rather than later since you know, by birthday is tomorrow. I have had such a great birthday celebration this year (and clearly, it's only going to get better!).
In the past I have talked about some of the things I have purchased for myself during Novakkah (oh, yeah, I totally give myself gifts during this celebration of awesome...duh...it's usually things that I need, or have just been to busy or lazy to get beforehand, don't be too impressed). Last night I bought myself some running shoes, the old ones were 8 years old and had no tread on the heels. Clearly it was time to give myself the gift of good shoes, I guess. Maybe not the best gift I have ever given to myself, but certainly one of the most functional and best for my health, maybe? And well, they are grey and purple, so that's something.
Anyway, what have I got for you today? Not shoes, I know, you were probably hoping. Today I have a skein of yarn. It's Lucy Neatby yarn. I have no idea if that means anything to you are not, but it is dyed well, albeit with a tiny catch of pink...which of course renders this useless to me. When I bought it, I knew it was going to be destined as a blog giveaway, and so, there you are.
Should you want to add this yarn to your collection (or, I don't know, maybe make something with it?), please tell me: what is the best gift you have given YOURSELF for your birthday (we have already covered other people). I want to know how you have spoiled yourself for your birthday. If this is something you don't engage in (you totally need to fix that), tell me what you would gift yourself with for your next birthday.
I will take comments for this post, and all Novakkah posts, until 11:59 EST (or 2359, should you prefer that), Saturday, May 12th. Please leave your responses on the appropriate post. One entry per post/person. I will show you what I have to gift each day and let you know what you need to tell me to try to get it. Giftees will be selected on the 13th and gifts sent out shortly (disclaimer: "shortly" matching my definition of the word, it could vary greatly from yours) thereafter.
