dala horse mittens and a baby sweater
Before we left for Madden's I decided I had to knit these mittens while we there. I worked on them all week, usually while sitting in a beach chair, surrounded by some of my favorite people in the world.
The pattern was a free chart on Ravelry (an amazing knitting website that offers thousands of knitting patterns, very addictive). I have a thing for dala horses.
They are little red painted horses from Sweden. I think they are awfully cute. I think little Swedish children used to play with them... I really have no idea. Anyways, they are almost done, and then I will move on to my next project...
A baby sweater for a very special baby... sex unknown. Which buttons do you like? I'm thinking about finding yellow duckies. The baby's mommy has chosen yellow and grey for the nursery which I think sounds very chic.
Did I mention that I love to knit? I couldn't resist this Rowan yarn... it was half off...
Do you ever think you would like to learn to knit? I'm thinking about giving lessons! I learned from my amazing German friend Andrea. She moved away to Colorado, but I think about her almost every time I pick up my needles. Have a great day everyone. xoxo
