Yarn Along :: WIP Wednesday

Oh, it's been almost a month since I last posted here... What can I say. The polar twilight hit me like a train and I have been so tired, sleepy and depressed this last month. My knitting mojo got lost as well, so I have just knitted a few rows here and there without much joy at all.
But I'm starting to feel less depressed and have more energy now as the advent is here. The advent lights are up and that's good because from today and until the middle of January it will get even darker than it's now. Which means we will have no real daylight... If I could I had gone into hibernation ;) But I know I have to pull myself together for the kids sake.  And I have to start knitting again - they need new mittens - although the weather is more like fall than winter here... We have had a couple of snowfall, but just a few cm and the next day it's been gone. I really want some snow now. It would lighten up the dark days and the kids would have something to do outdoors ;) Right now it's just boring to be out playing. Think they have had enough of the mud and the rain.

Reading: I am really enjoying Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children. If you haven't read it - you must! I'm almost done and I'm excited to find out how it ends.

Knitting: These mittens were meant to be gloves. But I didn't have the energy to think and count st for the fingers... But I think Erlend will like them anyway. These mittens will be one of the presents in the advent calendar. And with three more kids that needs a present that day, I need to speed up my needles a bit ;)

Knitting: I'm about to start the first finger on Erlend's glove. It's been a while since I knitted gloves, so they have been laying on the table besides me a few days waiting for me to get my brain to work and count stitches...

Reading: The kids and I have started the 2nd Little Vampire book, The Little Vampire moves inn :) I loved these books as a child and still find them amusing. The other book is Sapphire Blue (Edelstein Trilogie #2) by Kerstin Gier. I'm also reading Heart-Shaped box and Twiligh Hunger as I did last Wednesday.
