i just made a bunch with an old flannel sheet.....2 ply serged all around, with rounded corners. next batch i make will probably be 3 or 4 ply.

I'd go along with Ann....I'm actually on the lookout right now for just the right festive fabric to use for birthdays. *festive cloth napkins *solid table cloth that coordinates with the napkins *tissue paper decorations (we use these to make Papel Picado, it's a Mexican decoration of cut tissue paper that you string and make banners....if you do a search for Papel Picado, you'll see what I mean)......although it's tissue paper, once you make a few banners, you can...
What kind is it? Congratulaions!

I don't think you can ever go wrong a gift basket. Maybe you can theme one around Love. Like maybe get a bottle of wine, wine glasses, massage oil, a massage book and maybe one of those rollie massage thingies.
Check out this site. Has some good instructions. http://www.wonderful-things.com/newknit.htm You may want to go to your local yarn shop.

Another yarn shop I know just has open sessions all day on Saturday where you just drop in with a project and they have people readily available to show you techniques or help decifer instruction...
