That was a long holiday break. My birthday falls near Christmas too and it was a special one this year, so we've been away for a bit.
I did get some lovely knitting-related presents this year.
Some special skeins of yarn from my lovely mum - waves"Hi Mum"
Two skeins of Quince and Co Chickadee
A skein of Brooklyn Tweed Loft in the beautifully named "Button Jar" shade.
And a few knitting books.
My birthday weekend was a trip to London, which was just fabulous. One of the places we visited was the Natural History Museum (I've been plenty of times but Mr has never been). Not only are the exhibits fantastic but this time around I really appreciated how gorgeous the building is. The little details are just incredible. Here's just a little sample of photos.

It was a great weekend.
