My Nuthatch mittens are done. I love them although they came out a little to short and the thumbs are a little tight. So when I make more mittens from the book I will use 2,25 mm needles and maybe add a few rows of salt and pepper pattern before I start the decreasing.
Pattern: Nuthatch mittens
Yarn: 59 g Mor Aase baby ull
Needles: 2 mm
Modifications: The mittens (and gloves) in this book is all knitted from the top down. I have never done it, so I made them the usual way from the cuff and up.

I got a question the other day if I block my mittens.
Well, I usually don't block my mittens. Only if they are very "curly/bumpy" due to the stranded knitting. And then I use a wet cloth and my iron and steam them flat.
Eskimini Makes had a post about mitten blocking a few days ago, so you might get a few tips there.
My Komi mittens are almost done too, just have a few rows on the second and the thumbs left to knit, so there might be another fo post this weekend :)
Some of you have been asking how the water is. Well, hubby managed to break the ice that had packed itself in the hill above the well, so now it's melting and runs into our well. And fortunately we had a week with rain after we almost lost it. It's been a very dry fall/early winter here, so we still have to save our water.
I've promised the kids a snowshoe trip so hopefully we manage to do it this weekend.
What plans do you have? Whatever it is I hope your weekend will be great!
