Birthday Books! Yay!

It's my 21st birthday today, and thanks to all of my new yarny friends out there recommending so many cool things....
Here is what I got... :)

I also asked for yarn but was denied that request as I already have too much of it for my family's tastes. However, they decided that the books met with approval if only for the reason that it would give me a way to "use up that yarn somehow!"

I am quite excited to actually try some of the patterns and borders that so many of you talk about. Yay! Now I just have to decide (and find the time to crochet) on a pattern. Then once I am far enough, I will have to choose a border, etc. Oh.. I am not very good at decisions. 
Good thing I have all of you to recommend things to me, right?!



  1. Happy birthday to you!
    and because you only turned 21 years old, you have a lifetime to desided what square you are going to make first, what color yarn, and border :-)))))
    Have a great day!

  2. Happy birthday (slightly belated, sorry).
    Watch out for those crochet books, make sure they are published in UK (American books have different names for the crochet stitches).
    Enjoy xx

  3. Happy (belated) Birthday!
    The books look great..have a fun time crocheting :)

    My 21st birthday seems so long ago now, but I can remember two of the pressies I received! Have fun with yours.

  5. Happy birthday for yesterday. Hope you have fun with your books but I think your family are slightly unfair. You can never have too much yarn! Lots of love xxx

  7. Hi Katy, Happy belated birthday! I noticed you stopped by and became a follower to my blog so I wanted to come say hello and welcome. I'll also be a follower to your blog. I have that book, too. Aren't there some gorgeous borders in there? Hope it's warming up for you in Iowa and you're enjoying spring.


Hello! Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely day. :)
