FO :: Mittens

Untitled    Untitled    Untitled

Winter is here. And that means new mittens are needed.
So far I have made the kids a pair each, but I'm sure there will be more as I have found so many patterns I want to knit..
I've promised to make them a pair of gloves as well, and the first one got on my needles today.

A Friday ritual.
A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week.
A simple, special, extraordinary moment.
A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

FO's :: Daleks, Creepers and Marius

Untitled

It's been a while again. My blogging mojo is low... I think it has to do with shorter and darker days - my mood seems to get a bit low as well during these dark months. But I'll try to pop in here more often :) I have been knitting now that my arms doesn't hurt as much as they did. So there are things on the needles I'll have to tell you about soon and some fo's.
First is a pair of Marius socks. They are knitted in a heavy wool yarn which makes them big enough to wear as a second pair of woolsocks, which I often do during winter when my feet are cold.
Winter is here with and we've gotten a little bit of snow. Enouh for the kids to build a snowman and a snow lantern last night. But winter also means I can wear all the wool. I'm wearing my Nancy cardigan today while I snuggle on the sofa knitting.
