Happy New Year, everyone!
Yes, I know, we are well into January, but it's the first time I'm around, so... not only were we away for new year, but I've also had a terrible cold and the little energy I had was spent on 'routine' things rather than being online. Or even knit. Can you believe it's the first day today I picked up my knitting since Christmas? Anyway, wishing you all a happy and healthy 2017, with lots of times for all the crafty things.
My first finished object this year is these pair of mittens (okay, I finished knitting them before Christmas, but it took me until today to weave in the ends) and with the darn cold we are facing in Germany they got finished at the right time.
And being the winter lover that I am (ha, ha), the mittens express perfectly what I think about the German weather... The pattern isn't my own, but it's a paid pattern called 'How Cold Is It' by Drunk Girl Designs , and I just made a few modifications to make the mittens perfect for me: a longer cuff, I changed the colours on the back of the hand, knitted the writing in different directions, stuff like that. However, I love my new mittens and I really hope I won't have to wear them for months. Already can't wait for spring to come along...
