 Here in Kitten/Mitten land, the lilies of the valley are blooming. Oh, they smell so perfect.  Night blooming jasmine is my favorite flowering scent, followed by lilies of the valley and then lilacs.
Looks like the lilacs are about to bloom in the alley too. 
 My mitten is finished and I've started the match. I have to block them as the fair isle portion is of course a bit tighter than the rest.
I'm at that place in knit land where you are content and interested at the same time. It is my favorite knit place to be. 

All things kitten are making me smile today. 
Fezzik is adorable. 
Pie and Tank have both come upstairs and met him without so much as a hiss. 
Beatles, predictably, is staying away and timid. 
All in good time, all in good time.

I think you are doing well for just day 3.
Have a wonderful Mother's day, from our boys to their "Mama Kathy".

Lovely LofV and mitten! I think the other cats may know that he will get twice their size and they'd better like him. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

My lily of the valleys are in bloom also. They are so pretty next to all the violets. I wish they'd last longer.
The mitten is adorable. Love the Fair Isle pattern. It really jazzes them up.
Happy weekend with the new addition!

Lilacs are at the top of my spring scent list, followed by bearded iris - heavenly scents.

I used to have Lily of the Valley flowers and you're right - the smell is heavenly!

Your mitten turned out very nice - love the fair isle (I'll have to try that some day).
