Ask and Ye Shall Receive

As many of you know, my birthday was a few weeks back. From my family, I have asked for gift certificates to the lovely yarn shops in the past or knitting books or yarn and they look at me like I am strange but this year, this year was different.

My brother and SIL live about 45 minutes from me and I decided to look and see if there was a yarn shop in their neck of the woods. To me they live in the boonies, btw, having grown up in or very close to a major city. Lo and behold there is!! A Garden of Yarn is practically in their back yard and they carry a variety of yarns that I really like so I thought I'd half heartedly ask them to get me a gift from there. I didn't think they actually would. My SIL went there one morning after dropping her kids off at school. She told me that if she actually knitted, she would shop there she liked it so much. AMAZING!! They got me a very nice gift certificate from there so I guess I will be making the drive out there one weekend.

How much fun will that be?
