J. and I typically don't do anything on Valentine's Day, so I was so surprised when I got home last Thursday night after babysitting after work to a ProFlowers box at our door. Inside were some beautiful lilies and iris' from my dad! He's the best!
I love working with double pointed needles, so when I stumbled upon this pattern on Ravelry, I jumped at the chance to knit. I had the perfect yarn picked out, too! It's a very simple pattern, basic stuff!
I know I've mentioned that my wrist has been a giant bummer for nearly a year. I was able to do a few small cloths around Christmas, but not much more. I'm happy that this project has been pain free, without using IcyHot, so hopefully I'll be able to finish the second fingerless mitten in the next day or so.
As much as I love Christmas, I'm so glad that it's over! Lots of cleanup, packaging that needs to be stored away, J's birthday is TODAY, a cake to bake, a few gifts to wrap.. mother-in-law coming to visit next weekend.. much to do!

I've enjoyed my vacation for the last week. Working only half days has been good for me, spending time at home, snuggling with my cats, working on projects, relaxing. Tomorrow is another half day, Tuesday work is closed, and then back at it on Wednesday.
