It's Frodo and Bilbo Baggins birthdays! Frodo is born Sept.22, 2968 and Bilbo is born on 9/22/2890. Guess Sept. 22, 1951 is ancient history!
The Autumnal Equinox was at 11:44 AM.
Join the above with this:
Earlier today, in the dew-covered morning before the fog cloud deck cleared at 2 PM (!) I was reading on Ravelry where another 9/22 knitter, Geoduck, has a three year old daughter who woke up saying the fairies were having a party today, so she went outside searching for fairies. I understand the connection...perhaps I should reread "The Hobbit" today. The fairies will come. (Actually, they're always here.)
Didn't the clouds part magnificently? It may make it into the mid-70's after all. I couldn't have a better Birthday Sky! It's a great day for a fairy party.
Just to share some of the birthday wonders... a link bracelet from Yarn Vixen in Arizona arrived with paw print links and four special ones, "Nancy", "I love knitting" in symbols, a sheep and a Sapphire is on the jean jacket from DH. And the mistakenly sent bulk mail Wool Gathering arrived in the mail.
The bracelet will go wonderfully with....everything! The jean jacket has a long snap closured collar that will be great with scarves and the WG is the best one yet.
...and there's more....
Dinner is the I-refuse-to-grow-up variety. DiGiorno pizza, cake and ice cream. Yummmmmmm.
Email lists and Ravelry have been particularly entertaining today with the September 22 birthday group being raucously exuberant and the SHP-related groups just jumping for joy, and the personal emails of great positive excitement.
Knitting On 2, the guernsey is growing, but more on that tomorrow....
