43 & DPNs

Yep, its the big day :: 43 ::  enough said.
Thanks to the PurlBee I taught myself last night to knit in the round.
Let's hope Middle J would like a pair of fingerless gloves to match the hat I made him for his birthday! ☺
Luckily I had some yarn left over, it's the most amazing electric purple and green which he chose himself. Lovely lambs wool and mohair blend, which is amazing to work with.  Unfortunately the terrible light doesn't do the colours justice. 
Thank you Alice for the inspiration.  I figured if you could learn to knit on dpns whilst on a long bus journey, then surely there was a slim chance I could too with the aid of the Internet and the peace and quiet of a comfy chair!
Toodles and Happy Sunday!

Well done! Those two colours together reminded me of an outfit I had back in the 50's a purple circular skirt and a lime green vest top my Mum knitted to wear with it!!

Is it your birthday? Have I missed your mention or do the others know you better than I do? Anyway if so HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
