Nothing But Fun...

 We've got a new pair of mittens on the needles here at Irisheyes.
I'm mixing these two yarns up for some fair isle fun. 
No real pattern, just K2 in solid followed by k2 in color and then the opposite on the next round. 
Miss Pie is in the shot but would not look up. 
I think she's still a bit mad that we tag teamed and cut her nails yesterday. 

The little tool in the image is bike tool for Fireman's birthday. 
It is made by Spin Doctor.
It is for minor adjustments on the road. 
It hardly takes up any space. 
IE: if your seat or handlebars are loose, you can use the Allen wrench to fix it on the fly...
(Fireman's middle name is Allen...we just figured out why) 
Senor Boyer, Zach, had a good Cinco de Mayo because the Hawks won again last night.  
He is growing a playoff beard.  Aren't his eyelashes great?
How come boys get those eyelashes? 

Happy May 6th.  It is a BIG day here at our house. 
Happy Birthday dear Fireman,
Happy Birthday to you.

Happy Birthday Fireman!!

I have always been jealous of DH and the sons' eyelashes. They get the long ones while have to settle for the fake ones.

I love the mittens! I have been craving a little Fair Isle.

Oh Happy belated to The Fireman! Zach is such a handsome young man! I'm with you about boys and the eyelashes, I'm jealous of my boys too.

The yarn/color combinations in your mitts look really good. I'm excited to see the FO.

Boys do get terrific eyelashes don't they? My 18 year old as of today has beautiful ones, and Little Buddy's are so dark and thick.
