birthday, sheep, etc.

Busy, busy around here these days. I celebrated my birthday last week with a lovely afternoon tea with friends. I made Joy the Baker's simple vegan chocolate cake, which was delicious and very easy.
A knitting friend gave me these Lantern Moon sheep stitch markers for my birthday. Super cute!
My latest sheepie find? Cotton poplin PJ pants from Old Navy.
They come in a lovely bright spring green, too, though you may have to hunt them down in stores, since the supply online is woefully depleted (I blame/credit knitters).
We've been on the road a lot lately -- Milwaukee for Easter and Minneapolis for my mom's birthday have meant plenty of knitting time (though no photography time), but otherwise it has been a whirlwind. I promise knitting photos soon. I just blocked a shawlette, a baby sweater needs some buttons, and I should really take photos of my two latest cardigans, which I've been wearing nonstop.
We did see a great band at Space in Evanston last week! Hey Marseilles was back in town, and they put on a good show. Very different from last fall at Lincoln Hall, since they've put out a new album since then. Highly recommend! I think they'll be at Lollapalooza this summer.
