Thank you all for the kind birthday wishes you sent to SKK & IJK! They really enjoyed reading every single one. It was a hectic birthday for both of them - we weren't even able to have cake until 11:30 pm! As SKK says, "it was as good as a birthday on a Tuesday in January could be". Don't worry about them though we all went out for a fantastic dinner together last Friday night.
Now on to my new favorites, the End of May mittens. I haven't been outside without these beauties since I finished them a week and a half ago. I love them that much. Stranded knitting is wonderful for making mittens extra warm with that bonus layer of wool it adds. Then there's Mandy's fabulous pattern, so pretty, so well written - a perfect combination.
