30!

I'm turning 30 tomorrow. I'm pretty excited about it.

These photos were taken when I was a wee babe on Guam, where I was born. I can't get over how young my parents look. And man, I was one cute kid.

I would tell you the places I'm going to celebrate but I think it'll be more fun to post photos when I get back.

Booklet news - it's more likely that the next batch will go on sale on November 28 or 29; taking into account the Thanksgiving holiday and a more realistic timeline for the printing process, this seems a lot more likely. The good news is, if you buy the booklet around that time it will definitely still arrive in time for you to make gifts for the holidays, as the toys don't take super long to make. Not like the (very beautiful and fun to knit) lace shawl I made for my Mom last year; sheesh!

Happy Natal Day! As someone who has lived through them, I will testify that the 30's are fab years. My 40's have a lot to live up to...

Happy birthday, Jess! You'll love being in your thirties. My early thirties were definitely my favourite time. I just turned (gasp) 40 this last weekend. This I'm freaked out about.

On a happier note, I'm knitting a squarey right now for a friend's daughter's 7th birthday. IF I can bear to give him up, that is. He's coming together quite nicely! I'll send you a pic once I get him done.

Just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday! The scary 30! Sounds like you are going to make it a great day. There's enough time to worry about being old later. In fact, it took me years to realise ;-)

Happy birthday!! I really like the 30s, but now as I approach 35, I'm concerned about this aging thing. When does it stop?

I had a friend once who collected old photographs from antique stores. These are a bit too new for his taste, but they remind me much of the candid sort that he loved.

I love the beach photo of you with your Mom.

Hi, and Happy Birthday!
I got your booklet yestarday, and congratulations!, i've done a wonderful job. Every effort you've put into it, it's was worth it. Now I can't wait to try those guys. I think I'll star with Dolly, or perhaps the "Odd Fellow". He's so cute!

Happy Birthday! What great pictures. I hope you had fun on your birthday. The 30's are great.

Since your dad in the pic is probably the same age as I am, I must say, OMG what a hunk!!!

And Happy 30!
