    Mittens! 

    I made myself some mittens.  I saw this pattern on the Patons site and thought it was kinda cute and makeable.  I made the one one the right first, then the one of the left.  Can you tell the difference? 
    If you really look good the one one the left was made in rounds.  I finished making the one on the right and sewed up the side.  I hate having to sew up crochet projects.  So I looked at the pattern and made the one on the left in rounds.  It looks better and was way easier to make although I had to alter the pattern making the seconds rows opposite to fit the rounds.
    It’s make with classic wool so it’s nice and warm.  Now just have to find somewhere that has snow to try it out.  Maybe I’ll make some for my friends who live in snow country.

    It’s really cute, with photos of Boiy when he was alive and it’sput on an ornament hanger.  I thought it was so thoughtfull of her and it even bought a tear to my eye when i received it.

    more stuff 

    Took Midnight to her annual checkup.  She’snow 12 3/4 lbs.  Not bad for a kitty that had renal failure after eating some lilies in a flower arraingement.  That was a year ago.  Now she’s all okay like nothing happened.  Anyway, her vet is dr something, 30-ish and real personable.  Started talking to him about training cats and he said he taught his cat to jump through a hoop.  Check out the video on top.  Isn’t it hilarious?  He also has him dancing with his cat.  Too funny.

    While we were working on the other side of the island, I took pictures with my phone.  I thought it came out pretty good considering it was from a phone camera.  Boy nowadays they sure make some good sutff.
    This is from Laie point.  A little known beach in Laie.  My partner said he’s been going there for years and the hole in the rock used to be really small, throught he years it’s grown with the surf action.  Neat huh?
    This is a garden in the back of the City and County Haleiwa Base Yard.  My partner said the guy who works there and lives on the property has made it all nice through the years.  Don’t know where the peacocks came from but there was a bunch of them there, right is the midde is one on the rock and off to the right side is one sitting on the dirt.

    Yeah, I know, long time no see eh? 

    Yeah, I know, I can give all kinds of excuses but honestly, I didn’t take any photos and I was kinda lazy.  What have I been doin’?
    Kawika’s got glasses, dr says he has astigmatism.  The first day he wore it all day and next day too.  Then it was like, Kawika, where is your glasses?  Oh well.
