Isabel celebrated her 19th birthday last Saturday. She had asked for a pair of Shirl's Mittlets (see post from last week) and here they are.

What a lovely pattern. I think I must make some for myself before next winter. Speaking of the seasons, yesterday the sun came out and I took my first walk of the year WITHOUT BOOTS. Such a feeling of lightness! Flocks of geese have been flying over almost non-stop for the last 24 hours. They're surprisingly noisy. And I heard and saw my first redwing blackbird of 2011, so I'm sure spring is finally here. Hurray!
