One more word about my friend Barbara. She is an amazing knitter and crocheter and at my request, made me the most beautiful mittens. I wasn't expecting them for months, as she is pretty busy with her own projects, but she had them done for me in a week. They are modeled on the mittens Bella wears in the movie "Twilight." I loved how long they were and how toasty they looked. I've never owned a pair of mittens before in my life so I'm looking forward to using them. Thank you, Barbara!
