Wicked Witch Mittens - DONE!

While Skip was hitting a bucket of balls at the golf course yesterday, I worked on the second thumb of the Wicked Witch Mittens. During the Olympic coverage last night, I finished it.


I then began a Swallowtail Shawl using Zealana Kiwi laceweight yarn. It has 40% NZ merino, 30% organic cotton and 30% possum. I'm using big needles (4.5mm) compared to the yarn because I like the open look. No photos yet - but soon.

Today was possibly our last sunny and warm day. We took another hour-long walk on the beach nd after lunch went birding at the Birding Center. We saw white egrets, a black-crowned night heron, tricolour herons, great and little blue herons, a long-billed curlew,  killdeer, a lone mallard drake, mottled ducks, brown pelicans, a ringed kingfisher, several white ibis, greater and lesser yellowlegs, willets, yellow-rumped warblers, Caspian terns, pied-bill grebes, the resident alligator, moorhens, coots, blue-winged teal and several laughing and ring-billed gulls.
