I amost got married when I was 19. Just think, if I had married that guy I would be living in Waterford, Ireland now.  :(

I finished the mittens yesterday!  Thanks for all your kind words, ladies.   :)  I put all your names in a bowl and let my daughter choose one.  She closed her eyes and picked...CantgetenoughU2!  She is the lucky (?) winner of a one-of-a-kind, hand-knit 100 percent wool U2 mittens.  Congrats, cantgetenoughu2!  (This was kind of fun.  maybe I'll do it again someday.)  (Darn, it won't let me post a picture.  You can see them here: You are not allowed to view links.

Yes, there really is a Corning Museum of Glass. It is in Corning, New York (duh). It is basically a science center about glass-making with a nice glass art museum tucked inside. But...if you go... (breathe deeply now)...you will get to see how they make Pyrex!



OMG-I think I've been there. A childhood memory is coming back. Yes, I was there! Yooper, you must go!!!!

Ha ha... I've been there too!  My dad took me when I was younger.  I was like "Why are we going to a glass museum?" but it was AWESOME!!

These are the honestly the coolest mittens I've ever seen!!  If they were available on U2.com (and in guy sizes :P) I'd be ordering a pair.  Nice work! 8)

I'm ready, I'm ready for the weather now.
I'm ready, I'm ready for the snow.
I'm ready to shovel, I'm ready to sled,
I'm ready for a snowball to the head.
I'm ready, I'm ready for the slush!

That is perfect!
You may see the mittens penning those lyrics, or maybe holding a mic....
