Happiness is getting a visit from a friend for your birthday because the pkg of yarn just arrived and she couldn't wait to bring it to you even though it was early!
And you break your lifelong rule of saving all gifts until your actual birthday because SHE couldn't wait!
And then you cast right on for a shawl because you can.
And the friendship is such a gift, you can't stop smiling!
(shawl pattern is Lionberry)
