Apparently there really is sun above all that fog, and yesterday it dared to show itself for at least three full hours! I pulled my rocking chair up to the window and basked in it ... knitting.



I rationalized (as I thought about how many things I could be doing rather than simply sitting in the sun) that I'm still under the weather and that a good dose of vitamin D was just what I needed.



And I know that these mitts are just what my little Strawberry Girl needed. It's her turn to stay home sick today, and as she reclines on the couch with a hint of early morning sunbeam flooding the room, I see her staring at this bit of love made just for her.



She has named them Spring Mitts... for Meagane.

Alas, the cookie recipe is not my own. I just linked the recipe I used and added those changes I noted in the post.

You should totally enter your twin blanket! I think it would be a great entry! :)

Great color green. I love the touch of the little blue flower. As I sit here with the lap top on my lap in my husbands recliner, I have that funny feeling in my throat and chest. I know that a cold is on its way. First cold in three years. Yuck!!

You can just feel the warmth of this post. Nice green. Enjoy your weekend!
