I won't read my postings from last year when I announced I was coming back, but I think I had in mind to post some pictures of my knittings to finally get my ravelry project pages updated. So here are two of my most favourite knits I have ever done:
the left mitten and the right one of my pair of Fiddlehead Mittens!
The pattern is well written and knitting the mittens is so easy and quick. I very much enjoyed making these. Last year.
And over this past year they went through many things, including too hot washings and a bicycle accident I had in December during which they had to withstand a lot!
Knitted in a heavy DK weight yarn on small needles, they are dense and thick. Lined with an angora blend they are even warm enough to serve me as perfectly cozy skiing mittens while being on Hokkaido last week - with temperatures of up to minus 14 degrees Celsius!
I surely will never again wear some High-tech skiing glove again - I choose good old fashioned wool mittens!
