We did more rock climbing.
Searching for sea glass.
This particular little beach is a secret treasure trove.
Dug out the big lens to take pictures of Great Lakes ore boats passing by.
Spent (way) more time than expected on a jigsaw puzzle.
We leave the TV off, so there's plenty of time to fill.

Quilt shopping with a friend today. We hit two quilt shops in the south metro.
I picked up the black fabric for Girl of the House a few years ago in Decorah, Iowa. I've been looking for good coordinating fabric ever since.
I'm pretty sure I've finally found something that will work. I love these pre-chosen packs of fabric. I have the worst time mixing colorways on my own.

I was sure the snow would all be melted by the time I finished knitting these mittens.
I was wrong.
We had three more inches of snow today. It is currently 12˚ with a windchill of -2˚.
Wednesday is the first day of spring.
One year ago it was in the 70s.
I think I finished these just in time.

Rather than save my yarn nubbins for carding into spinning fiber, I picked up an inexpensive suet feeder and loaded 'em up. It's a bit early perhaps, seeing as the ground is still snow-covered, but the birds will be aware of it when they are ready.
While I was at it, I added another suet feeder to a new location in the back yard.
By the time I'd hung the yarn, I turned to see a nuthatch had already found the new feeder.

I am embarrassed to say that I have been wearing this sweater for several years sans buttons.
(I blogged it was washed and blocking on 12 Nov 2009. Sad, eh?)
Tonight I sewed the buttons on.
X and O Kauni Cardigan is finally complete.

My favorite pair of mittens for snowshoeing and cross country skiing, after skiing today.
They are the perfect active outdoor weight.
Sure, I could.
But isn't this a good opportunity for a new pair of mittens?
Excuse me, I need to go look at mitten patterns.
