Laura is 30!

Today was Laura's (ReallyandTruly on Ravelry) 30th birthday, and we celebrated by meeting in the Colchester castle park by the duck pond, sitting in the sun, drinking champagne and overeating. Unfortunately, I now have a sun burn and look like a lobster with blond hair, but it was so worth it. I had a blast chilling with Laura, her boytoy, some of her friends I hadn't met before and some knitters from the High Street bar group. The sun was out, the ducks were making babies and it was a beautiful day.
As I mentioned in the last post, I did make her a gift but couldn't post it until today since she has read (not sure if she still does read) here. So here are the promised pictures, I made her an agate necklace and bracelet set with a set of 5 stitch markers to use the leftover beads. They didn't photograph well, but the necklace and bracelet did. She seemed to really them- she wore the bracelet for the rest of the picnic.

That's about it. I'm going to go study some more. I really can't wait for these damn finals to be OVER!
