Sunday Quotes

The three little kittens they found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
"Oh mother dear, see here, see here
For we have found our mittens."
an excerpt from the Nursery Rhyme
3 Little Kittens
Knitting: finished these mittens for Bumpkins.
Specifics: Lion Brand Homespun yarn, pattern Family of mittens by Lion Brand. (you will have to register w/that website to view pattern).
Knitted on US 5 needles for cuffs, made longer than pattern called for.
Knitted US 7 for remainder of the mittens.
Only took around 2 weeks to knit up (they are extremely fast knit).

Lots of long work hours for me.

Bumpkins now growls like a cat when her hair is washed. On one hand it is funny, she must have heard Athena growling many times!

Our furnace was serviced on Friday (and now there is no heat in the back 1/4 of the house). Think I will be calling them on Monday.

Temps have been in the mid 20's. Friday morning was beautiful, with the full moon. Perfect for skiing (just not enough snow).

Dinner was Brawts, homemade preztels and veggies (did you know that if you don't add enough water to the veggies before microwaving, they will dehydrate. And lots of margarine won't rehydrate them.)
